The main attraction here of course is the Parliament. There are other attractions here such as 2 soldiers marching around a pole, statues, Tourists Information Office, National Entomology Museum ( currently under renovation), other parks near by, restaurants, Danube River, etc. Highly recommended to visit!...More

This is a wonderful area in the center of the city close to the Danube River. While there, be sure to take a tour of the Parliament Building. Also close are the shoes along the Danube River.

Nothing special here. It is a plaza which is somewhat the center of Budapest. There are interesting shops, but nothing special.

District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube,
with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The
Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica
stand out as two of the finest examples of
architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for
more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval
city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while
the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention
