Budapest Danube River Evening Sightseeing Cruise by Legenda City Cruises

707 reviews
Take in the illuminated highlights of Budapest during an evening cruise on the Danube River, which gives you some of the best opportunities to snap photos of the city's top landmarks lit up. Float past the UNESCO World Heritage–listed riverbanks in a glass-enclosed boat, toasting the sights with an included beverage (alcoholic or nonalcoholic). Highlights include the Chain Bridge, the Buda Castle District, the Hungarian Parliament, and others, which are all put into context with onboard film and audio guides available in multiple languages.

For me, Heroes' Square and especially the Millennium Monument is one of the most amazing tourist sites of Budapest. The magnificent monument erected in honor of Hungary's Millennium Celebrations in 1896 (actually completed in 1929). On a Corinthian pillar located in the center of the monument, 36 meters high, stands a statue of the angel Gabriel holding in his hand the sword of St. Istvan, this statue symbolizes the conversion of Hungary during the reign of the king. At the base of the pillar stands a magnificent statues of Prince Arpad and six Mediary horsemen warriors. Opposite the pillar is the tomb of the Hungarian unknown soldier. On either side of the pillar there are 2 convex colonnades set in statues of the greats of the Hungarian nation including kings and statesmen. At both ends of the colonnades stand statues symbolizing war & peace, knowledge & glory, work, & prosperity. Making a long story short, a very impressive site for any visitor and especially for the photography enthusiasts among you.

This square usually shines during the summer and is rather depressing during winter. However, a sunny winter day in February made it look pretty beautiful and all the statues and sculptures were bright from the morning dew.

This beautiful square is located on Andrassy Avenue in Budapest and for those who've been to Vienna it holds a certain resemblance to Maria Theresien square - 2 museums facing each other on the sides of the square - a memorial statuary complex in the center and a gateway - to a park in Budapest (Hofburg in Vienna). The most known is the central statuary complex -when you say Heroes square this image is what sticks to people's minds. Work on the monument has begun in 1896 - to commemorate 1000 years of Hungary- and it consists of 2 colonnades, that in between the columns have the statues of iconic hungarian statesman (e.g. John Hunyadi, Mathias Corvinus, etc.). On top of the colonnades facing each other are 2 figures in chariots - a man with snake in his hand symbolizing "War" and woman with a palm branch/leaf in her hand symbolizing "Peace". In the middle on top of a tall column is the Archangel Gabriel holding in one hand the crown of Hungary - the crown of Saint Stephen, first king of Hungary who converted to Christianity and got his crown from the Pope - and in the other hand holds the Double Cross. At the bottom of the column statues of the 7 leaders of the Magyar Tribes can be found - first one in the front is Arpad - the founder of Hungary. And in front of the column there is the "Heroes stone" - a memorial stone commemorating those fallen in defense of Hungary. Overall very interesting place and definitely worth seeing - so when you are in Budapest go and check it out.

We passed by bike as we were heading to the thermal baths. The square is big and beautiful as well as the buildings around the round about. It is a great “ door” to the park with an impressive history and relevance to the people and country.
