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.

A very popular museum with a bit of a line, certainly an eye opening experience and educational regarding some of the history of Hungary that may be less well known to outsiders. It certainly leaves an impression.

I would like to note that the 3/5 review of the museum is not just for the exhibits themselves, but the experience as a whole. The museum is very informative, providing great insight into the time during Nazi and Soviet control in Budapest during the 30s-50s. As you travel through the building, different timeframes and stories are brought to life right in front of you. The reason I took off 2 stars is due to the ticketing process. The girl working at the ticketing booth had a very nasty attitude. Clearly did not greet visitors and demanded our kids to show IDs proving they are EU citizens. We showed her the HU birth certificate on the phone and the girl examined it for about 30 seconds as if she is even qualified to judge whether the document is real or fake. Then during the entire visit, we had a certain security person following my family at each exhibit. There were other groups as well but our group was the only one with a tailing security personnel. For reasons unknown, my whole family felt very uncomfortable. exhibits 5/5 service, experience 1/5

The House of Terror promotes itself as a museum to honor the victims of the Nazi occupation of Hungary and the victims of the Soviet-backed communist regime. Many people have complained that the Nazi period is given short shrift and the House of Terror's justification is that the communist dictatorship lasted much longer. I was more disturbed by the failure to mention that Hungary was an Axis ally of Nazi Germany for several years, an incredible whitewashing of the country's past. This is not history -- it's the falsification of history. I can understand that many Hungarians are embarrassed by the alliance with Hitler but that is no excuse for pretending that it never happened.

We were highly enthusiastic to learn a lot more about the nazi and communist domination of Hungary as we entered and left with a highly impressive horrified heart. The testimonials all over the museum make it very impactful, realistic and closer than ever to you. Very important to learn from the survivors.
