The city has made noises about building a funicular to Budapest’s best vantage point, but until then, it is a steep, sweaty slog to the citadel on the hill. The two parts of the city are connected by a large number of bridges, all of which go differently.
The beauty of the fascinating neo-gothic Hungarian Parliament on the bank of the Danube River can be appreciated from either close or the other side of the river. Budapest is easily one of our favorite cities in Europe. It is easy to stay in Budapest for a long time, but in 2 days in Budapest, you will be able to cover a lot of the city.
