This is a viewpoint, nothing else. It is quite cheap but not free. The city of Pest is spread out before you, and the views of the parliament are excellent.

Worthless and boring, like Hungarians in general, full of Criminals and dumb tourists, full of garbage which the Lazy Hungarians won't clean up, avoid, only go if you like sharing the Hungarian national pasttime of being miserable and pointless to the World.

This was located just outside our room at the Hilton and offered the best view we have had anywhere in the world. We had our own postcard each morning.

The Fisherman's Bastion is a lovely place to view across the Danube and take a little stroll and some photographs.

Fisherman's Bastion is a place that you should visit while you are in Budapest. It's an architecture so nice and gorgeous, and the view over Pesta is simply amazing.

The historical center to a city with a multifarious
and intricate past, Buda has some of the most
outstanding buildings in Europe and an enviable
natural landscape with stunning views onto the Danube.
Centered around the Royal Palace, it provides a
glimpse into the golden years of the Austro-Hungarian
empire and the lives led by the aristocracy at the
time. Matthias Church, beside the palace, hosted many
