If you visit this city, a night-time cruise of the Danube is a must. To city the city lit up at night gives you great opportunity for some amazing photographs.

Such a nice place for romantic walks by the river. There are such nice views to city signs as well as a lot of places where to just sit and relax.

One of the "must to do" or "must to see" when visiting Budapest, is the famous Danube River. Walk across the river, or choose a cruise and relax during the river cruise. But the river is obvious that is under pollution.

Wow. This was a special trip on the Danube river. Saw all the sights from the boat. Absolutely awesome. I recommend this to everyone.

Our holiday was slightly spoiled as the river levels were low and what should have been a Viking River Cruse turned into a bus tour with a changed itinerary. Budapest well worth a visit but take two days at least.
