What not to miss in Budapest
The emblem of the city is its castle, located on Buda Hill. There you can also find the famous sculpture of the Fisherman’s Bastion, the Lions Courtyard, the National Art Gallery and the Savoyai Terrace, with amazing views over the Danube and Pest. In Pest, you cannot miss a trip to the thermal baths, especially those of Szechenyi and Rudas. Andrássy Avenue is of such beauty that it was named a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, and it leads to Heroes Square, a square with buildings of great architectural and historical value. A building that stands above the rest though is its Parliament, on the banks of the Danube. Of smaller size is the Synagogue on Dohány Street,a part of the city’s Jewish legacy which can also be seen in the memorial of the Shoes on the Danube and in its Museum of Terror, which relates the different eras of terror that the city has suffered throughout its history.
