Couples seeking a romantic activity for some quality time together will love this evening cruise on the Danube River. After a busy day of sightseeing, sit back and relax as you cruise past some of Budapest's most beautiful attractions, lit up at night. Enjoy a 4-course dinner by candlelight, and be entertained with live Hungarian music.

This is a central memorial, located just next to the Parliament building, under the huge Kossuth Lajus square. The memorial pays tribute to the Hungarian uprising against the USSR's government in Hungary in 1956.

You would not have known this was a small memorial located underground from just looking at it from the top as it just looks like some metal wall, interestingly with bullet holes through it. Worth a little look if you are in the area.

We were very moved while touring this underground memorial that presents October 25, 1956, when soldiers opened fire on a peaceful crowd on the square here killing hundreds of people.

Came upon this exhibition whilst looking at the parliament building from the front. It is down some steps and is completely free. I was totally ignorant of the 1956 massacre and found the whole exhibition very moving and thought provaking. I purchased a book at the desk as you enter to read more about this dreadful massacre. Still can't believe they do not know the actual number of people killed.!! The building opposite the houses of parliament has the bullet holes marked with metal and also a memorial. Definitely worth a visit.

We went to the parliament building for a few pictures and noticed a stairway leading down right in front of the parliament building. What a pleasant surprise. It is known as Bloody Thursday which started as a peaceful protest during which a shot was fired from an unknown origin. This caused many deaths as the military started firing with the tanks. Don't miss this and buy a dvd while you are there as you cannot find the story anywhere else, I've tried looking for it
