    Beautiful building, especially when lit up at night time! We didn’t go inside the parliamentary building so can’t comment on it from that point of view. Definitely worth visiting even if you don’t go inside.

    A beautiful unique attraction overlooking the city of Budapest (Buda side) - would definitely recommend visiting on a clear day to see the views. It really is as wonderful as the pictures look.

    Stunning building inside and out. We were fortunate enough to witness a wedding in the Basilica. The detailing inside is overwhelming. The 360 lookout is a long way up but definitely worth a visit even if the stairs up are not for the faint hearted (there is a lift!)

    This is an impressive complex of buildings but there is a lot of building work going on at present. Lovely views from the top over the river and Pest. Really worth a wander round the whole area as there are lots of cute little buildings to see. We got the metro up, walked through the district and then walked down - much easier than walking up!

    This is a must see attraction. We hadn’t realised when walking to the shoes that there were information boards which were very interesting to read. Would definitely recommend visiting.

    Hosted Margaret island after a recommendation from a tour guide we had. We walked from one end to the other with a few stops in-between. Unfortunately it started to rain lots as we may of seen more but what we did see we absolutely loved! Lots of pretty flowers and gardens. Lots to see and so from a spa, pubs, cafes, musical fountain which would me lovely at night! Great place to visit and would recommend if visiting Budapest especially if the weather is right!

    Great views over Budapest and the Danube. Worth the climb (which really isn’t that bad!). It was a shame the monument wasn’t open.

    This bridge is currently being renovated so much of its beauty is obscured. The lions that proudly guarded each end have been removed for safekeeping while the bridge itself is repaired and refinished.

    There is so much to see on the hill where Buda Castle is. This is just one of the lovely spots. The roof is especially beautiful. Lovely walk around

    This area was reduced to rubble during World War Two, but over the past several decades this historic district has been rebuilt in a fashion reminiscent of the original. The district is packed with points of interest, beautiful buildings, and many vantage points offer panoramic views of the Danube River and Pest which stretch out below.

    AMAZING and not to be missed. I took my teens along to show them my "gaming" past life and a great time was had by all. It is mind boggling all the machines here and not just pinball but all the classics. Honestly it is a brilliant way to spend a few hours. It does get loud so if you have anyone in your group that is sensitive to noise then I suggest they bring along some noise cancelling headphones or ear buds. The gentleman at the cash desk is super friendly and kind. AND if by chance you really have time to kill then you can re-enter as many times as you like that day. If you have kids I highly recommend going when it opens at 4 as it does get busier later on. Hats off the the owner who has done a great job. Once you pay admission you don't need coins of tokens for the machines just rock up and play. We even got t-shirts! (this is conveniently located just a few minutes walk from Westend Shopping Mall)

    This museum is literally set into the rock, and is amazing in its scale. The history behind this place makes it worth a visit alone, but additionally we found our 60 minute tour to be very informative, and we found the wax sculptures in the hospital itself very amusing. If you are going to Budapest, go here for a fun lesson in the city’s history.
