- In Buda, climb the castle hill whose neighborhood is on the UNESCO's World Heritage list. Enjoy the spectacular view of Pest. Stroll through the paved streets and among the colorful, baroque style houses. The Royal Palace is worth the visit. It was destroyed during WWII and then rebuilt. Today it houses several museums. Also, discover the Saint Matthias Church and the Fishermen's Bastion.
Stop in the belvedere on top of Mount Gellert, in front of the Liberty Monument, commemorating the liberation of Budapest by the Red Army in 1945. Inside the citadel, a German bunker has been converted into a museum, a reminder of Nazi occupation during the second world war.
- In Pest, obviously, the Parliament with its neo-gothic style is an emblematic building in the city. The Hero Square and the Millennium Monument are quite impressive.
- Budapest is also known for its thermal baths among which some of the most famous are the Gellert, the Szechenyi, and the Kiraly baths.
