Cruise the Danube River
A trip to Budapest is like visiting two cities in one, and the best way to see this is by taking a cruise on the Danube River. With historic Buda on one bank, and vibrant Pest on the other, this city has creative contrasts that are worth exploring. Hop on a Danube River cruise and see the city in all its unique glory.
A delightful way to see the city
From guided tours that reveal the history of the city, to dinner at a floating restaurant, Budapest has no shortage of options for those wishing to take an enjoyable trip down the Danube. No matter which you choose the stunning city backdrop remains the same, which will delight you at each bend.
On the craggy, wooded hills of Buda, the elegant spire of the Matthias Church tower and the grand majesty of the castle are instantly eye-catching, providing a glimpse at some of the most stunning art and architecture in Europe. The Pest riverbank is dominated by the magnificent and imposing neo-Gothic architecture of the Hungarian Parliament building. The Parliament is best seen with a view from the water, where the scale of this national treasure can be truly appreciated.
