    Amazing location in what felt like the top of Buda. Beautiful views of the city and river below. I felt like a little girl in a princesses castle grounds. Lots of great restaurants nearby too! Well worth a trip to visit! Even better is staying in the area. Loved my time there.

    Very moving seeing the shoes along the Danube in Budapest. So sad knowing the people lost their lives.

    A well thought out monument.

    This was our first cruise and we had no great expectations. Food was good but not exceptional, I can cook as well.Service was very good with nothing too much trouble. We sailed at night except for one day trip through the Iron gate. This was a bit disappointing. Trips off the boat were mainly long bus trips for 2 to 3 hour visit. The visits were however really worthwhile..visit local house , concert in cathedral etc. We were in room 336 and some nights the travelling was noisy and bumpy. I have since been told try to get closer to bow. We have decided we are better free travellers than cruisers, but some people love cruising

    It is a place you must go at night. We went there on Sunday night. Walk through the bridge and enjoy the night view in Budapest.

    Lovely outdoor excursion worth a visit for sure. We didn't pay to go inside anywhere we just walked around. We took the funicular up and that was a waste of money. The trip is two minutes. We should have walked. But whatever. The grounds are cool and lots of pretty architecture to check out. Good views from the top and a nice meander down back to ground level. We missed St Matthias when we were up there which was an error.

    Heroes Square is a very lovely monument with its tribute to the original seven tribes that founded hungry and behind them you can see other kings and nobility men of hungry’s past. It’s also nice that it goes right onto a Park so you can enjoy it walking back there and finding a Castle or the statue Anonymous. Who brings inspiration to writers who touch the pen he holds.

    I'm sorry, but I stole the title of my review from something I read on Google. I'm just getting that one out there before I start.

    When I planned my trip to Budapest I expected to visit the usual landmarks. I hadn't considered Margaret Island. I didn't really know anything about it until today. I had visited the parliament and walked north to find something to eat. I decided to eat on the big Island I could see on the map.

    That is when I realised what a magical place Margaret Island is. I started with the amazing fountain, staying for a second showing (glad I saw the GnR bit) and then wandered off to tour the island.

    I said magical. It really is. The gardens are beautiful, the ruins mysterious and I came across a lovely little church. The Japanese Garden, at the north end of the island was stunning.

    Right now I'm sat in the Light Garden waiting to see a light display and writing this. I should go for some dinner but I love this place. Food can wait. Need to see the light show at the fountain too.

    You know a place is great when food won't drag you away.

    We visited on a sunday morning at May. we got there via bus 105 and the funicular railway, arriving around 10.00. We spent a couple of hours looking around including the castle. Fantastic views. Was getting busy at around 12.00, so suggest getting there early.

    A great hike option if you're in Budapest! It is also cheap and has an interesting a beautiful way up to the top. The best time to visit is in the evening, so you can watch the sunset or the nightlife of Pest.

    We had a fantastic time!
    We have never seen so many pinball machines in one place in our lives and all free to play once you have paid the (very reasonable) entrance fee.
    Some other vintage games machines too.
    Note the opening time of 16:00.
    A brilliant fun time. We will go again.

    I’ve seen some recent reviews and I don’t see where those issues were? The zoo is very well laid out, there’s plenty of shows & feeding talks/animal talks throughout the day.

    Yes, there is a lot of walking but that adds to the experience of going between different ‘continents’ of where the animals are! The sealion show was hilarious! There was a great variety of animals too!

    Only issues are… there wasn’t loads of staff around if you needed help… and the rhinos looked claustrophobic in their independent pens, but we may have visited on a day they weren’t outside mingling with each other because it was 35°.

    I’d definitely return if I come back to Budapest.

    I like bridges and I thought this was particularly impressive. It’s green steel with majestic birds on top (they must be enormous) and the Hungarian Coat of Arms on the side. Buda is one side, Pest the other. It is centuries old and of course rebuilt after the war. Our views from the Danube were glamorous.
