Budapest is an incredible travel destination. Ancient history, an imperial background, Europe’s biggest river and a stunning architecture. Budapest offers a lot of travel attractions and the most famous is the cruise in Budapest. But there are a lot of attractions in Budapest, we will talk about some of them and finishing with some details about the Danube river cruise.
Matthias Church, also known as The Church of Our Lady, is a prominent landmark on Castle Hill. It was completed in 1269, and the magnificent south doorway, with its relief depicting the Death of Mary, was added in the 1300s. In the Turkish occupation (1541-1699), it was used as a mosque and later renovated in the Baroque style. It has been the scene of several historic events, including the coronation of King Charles I of Hungary in 1309 and the coronation of Emperor Franz Joseph I of Austria and his consort Elisabeth ((Sissy) as rulers of Hungary. It was for this event that Franz Liszt composed his coronation mass. There are free organ concerts here on Sunday evenings.
Thanks to its abundance of thermal baths, Budapest has earned the nickname ‘City of Spas’. There are many great baths in the Hungarian capital, but Szechenyi gets our vote for its stunning architecture and open-air bathing: visitors can relax in two outdoor thermal pools, surrounded by neo-Baroque and neo-Renaissance architecture. Located on the historic Andrassy Avenue, the Hungarian State Opera House is widely viewed as one of the world’s most beautiful. The building has played host to world-class operatic performances as well as ballets, concerts and more; for anyone not wanting to catch a show, guided tours of the building take place on a daily basis, with the option to add on a ‘mini-concert’. From July 2017 – May 24, 2018 the Hungarian State Opera House will undergo renovations in its auditorium, meaning there will be no performances during this time. However, the building will remain open for tours, and the Opera Shop and Cafe will also stay in business.
