The historic city of Budapest, Hungary serves as a popular turnaround port for many Danube-based river cruises, and is noteworthy as one of the few cities to offer guests two distinct river cruise itineraries: those sailing West to Austria and Germany, and Black Sea voyages that explore Eastern Europe and the magnificent Iron Gate.
So what should you see while in Budapest? Here’s a few of our favorite diversions, all of which are situated on the “Pest” side of the city.
Budapest is made up of two distinct sides, separated by the River Danube. Buda, situated on the city’s Western bank, is home to the imposing Buda Castle. Pest, on the opposite, can be easily identified by the gorgeous Hungarian Parliament situated along the banks of the river.
We’ll take you on a photo-tour of Buda later next week.
