    The guided tour in the Parliament is expectedly quite busy and touristy with at least 30 people in attendence. You get some ear phones and it started about 5-10 minutes late, followed by 5 minutes of climbing up 120 or so stairs. Then you get led around a few corridors to see the great entrance hall/reception assembly. You then walk on to see the "town hall" with its superb high double dome that you're not allowed to photograph and a display of the "crown jewels" (don't expect the Tower of London experience here). From there it's on to the Parliament hall. Altogether this is very interesting to see and you get some nice vistas from the windows. In an nutshell, you have a 30min experience €20/person but it gives an impression of the scale of the place, the history and the situation and there's an informative interactive display to look at afterwards.

    If you're tourist thing is to visit churches you will not be disapointed. The inside of St. Stephen's Basilitca is simply stuning. The surrounding walls showcase statues and fresques and the stations of the cross are just beautifull. The central altar and the voulted ceilings are magnificient. For a special treat you can use an elevator to get the a bell tower that gives you great views of the city. Worth the stop.

    When you realise what you're seeing, and then understand why you're seeing it your emotions run wild.
    Suffice to say I was incredibly moved by this.
    Must see if visiting Budapest.

    This is quite a long street that goes from Vorosmarty Square to the Central Market Hall. It has some lovely shops, restaurants and cafes along it but mainly lots of tourist shops selling the same items but at different prices. If you are looking for something specific, the items get cheaper the further away from Vorosmarty Square you get. Nice for a stroll, especially after dark in December when all the fairy lights are on.

    Great location wonderful rooms wonderful art deco interiors.

    This is a Four Seasons that feels like a Four Seasons. Still a large hotel but friendly and helpful.

    Good location and will be even better once the bridge opp the front door is reconstructed and open again - rather a long way across to the Pest side.

    We visited in December when the Christmas Market was on which was quite a few stalls (although no where near as many as 2013) selling gifts, crafts, Christmas decorations and food and drink. Food prices were a rip off so work out the conversion rate carefully before buying! There was a little train at the top end and the square was filled with fairy lights and a huge Christmas tree.
    The famous Gerbeaud Cafe is worth a visit, although quite expensive, the cakes are to die for.
    The square s also one end of Vaci Street, the main pedestrian shopping street in Budapest.

    A lovely promenade by the shores of the Danube, the Danube Promenade is set between the Szechenyi Chain Bridge and the Elizabeth Bridge (Erzsebet hid) on the Pest side. Historically significant and pleasant for strolls, this walkway offers stunning views across the Danube. Leisure strolling on the beautiful Danube Promenade has been a tradition for locals and tourists alike since the 19th Century. This promenade once served popular hotels like the Ritz, the Hungaria, and the Carlton on its scene; and at present hosts a line of five-star luxury hotels, restaurants, bars, casinos and cafes. Bordering the promenade and overlooking the Danube are the mesmerizing views of the Buda Castle, Vigado Concert Hall, Hungarian Academy of Sciences and Gellert Hill. Along with this, the line of sculptures – which include William Shakespeare, Istvan Szechenyi, Jozsef baron Eotvos de Vasarosnameny, the Little Princess (Kiskiralylany), and Sándor Petofi on the walkway are another treat.

    Very interesting square with a wide variety of memorials and monuments. Surprised to see a statue of Presidents Bush and Reagan across from one dedicated to Soviet Soldiers. Then down the way is another dedicated to the Holocaust. It was a pretty park with a blend of monuments which all had a different angle to history.

    Nice big carriages that offer beautiful views over the city. It's a must after dark when the city is at its most beautiful. It can get busy and is a little expensive compared to other things we did when we were in Budapest but a good experience.

    This monument sits in a little park at the Pest end of Margaret Bridge. It commemorates the Hungarian Prime Minister who was leading the government during the 1956 Rebellion. He was tried for treason, executed, and buried in an unmarked grave.

    Duna Palota ("Danube Palace") - a former casino, and today a venue and ticket office for Hungarian Concert's popular tourist shows. Located very conveniently in the center of the Old Town, on Zrinyi Utca, and the concerts are held place here almost 365 days a year. We attended the popular concert named Hungarian Folk Show. Duna Palota is medium size theater but beautiful and ceremonial.

    My best suggestion - If you want to have a very good seats, book in advance on official site - the tickets category 1 (37 euros) and choose the rows between 5-8. Get the confirmation by email, print and bring it to cashier, be there at least 20 minutes before the show starts, you should have enough time to exchange your voucher to actual paper ticket. This is critical and important. On time when we exchanged our vouchers, it was a 10 people line before us, with one person in the case. And plus to this it was an incident - the couple who bought their tickets from third party was not able to exchange their confirmations due double sale. It was long conversation with a cashier who had stated - this is not my fault - go to your agency where you bought a tickets. This dispute took time and we were afraid that we wouldn’t have time before start the performance. Then it was also necessary to climb up the several fly of stairs.

    So be there in advance and DON'T BUY the tickets from third party - book online on official site or personal on spot. In additional the official site proposes a taxi transfer if you need for 14 euros round trip. Plus if you want, you can add to your show tickets - the evening dinner cruise by Danube after show. The concert was good, with 10 minutes intermission. Dress code- possibly Smart Casual. While highbrow classical music buffs will want a more serious concert, these show is crowd-pleaser with national Hungarian music, dances and songs.

    The Christmas markets in Budapest are lovely. They are over a couple of sights so make sure you visit them both. (St Stephens Basilica and Vorosmarty Square) They are not massive but enough as lots of the stalls sell similar things anyway. There’s a cute light show on the Basilica which seemed to run on the hour and half past once it had dropped dark. Nice to see if you’re there.
    Watch for the prices of food in particular as it is way more than the restaurant prices. We found most drinks weren’t too inflated, but food was nearly double. We thought it would be mainly cash payment but the majority offered card or were card only.

    Nice statue along The Danube Embankment which represents a father's daughter. Has impressive views of the castle behind it. Nearby is another statue The Girl With The Dog Statue.

    This has to be the most loved Policeman in the world. His belly is shiny from everyone hugging him or rubbing it. We can’t walk past without saying “hello” and giving it a rub.
