  1. Ok, you have convinced me! It looks absolutely beautiful and you have provided the perfect itinerary. I would love to check out everything you have highlighted, especially seeing the memorial along the Danube paying tribute to anti-Semitism. That must be a very powerful reminder of the dark history.

  2. Oh I found the thing I want to see (well among many like the basilicas, river walk, and food). I’m a huge bridge fanatic so I must see and walk along the Szechenyi Chain Bridge! Does it light up at night? I hate we didn’t get to visit Budapest when we were in Vienna. We decided there wasn’t enough time and that Budapest deserved its own trip vs a day trip. I see from your post we were correct!

  3. Budapest is one place I have always wanted to travel. The views from Fishermans Bastion look beautiful. I would also love to visit the Basilica. Looks like a wonderful itenariery.

  4. Everything here is so picturesque! It’s great that there isn’t just one popular thing to see and do which makes exploring the city so much more enjoyable. So sad to read about The Shoes on the Danube. Such a dark and sad time in our history.

  5. Budapest is such a beautiful city, I think you really summed it up wonderfully. I hope to visit there next year and am very much looking forward to all this gorgeous architecture, food and things to do.

  6. I would be happy to visit in the cooler months. I can understand why the parliament building is the most popular to photograph. It is stunning indeed and I can only imagine how it would look with the sun glow. The thermal baths are a must for me too. The Danube night cruise sounds very romantic. Budapest looks beautiful and is definitely on my list.

  7. That rose ice cream is so cute!
    Such a photogenic city, I would definitely wont to experience the thermal baths, you see them on the travel shows here in Australia all the time. Budapest is popular among the river cruising travellers however I will definitely be putting Budapest on my European itinerary and I will be experiencing the Danube river to pay my respects and for a lovely night cruise.

  8. Budapest has been at the top of my list for the last couple of years and this looks like a perfect itinerary! Great photos and YUM to that rose icecream!

  9. I missed Budapest due to lack of time when I did Eastern Europe visit. But I would surely go for it on my next visit as it looks very beautiful with so many things to do. Having food and drinks beside Danube river looks a very beautiful way to enjoy these city’s vibes and also that rose ice-cream is very tempting.

  10. The one thing I regret not being able to fit into my short time in Budapest was a visit to a thermal bath. So it’s at the top of my list for next time!
