Check into your booked accommodation on the Pest side. Walk around the city and catch the Budapest vibes.
End the day with views of illuminated Budapest. Taste traditional Hungarian cuisine on the Danube while relaxing on a 2-hour long cruise, accompanied by live music.
The Hungarian Parliament is a must-see. Book well in advance. (We did not and could not get tickets for our first trip.) They’re usually open from 08h00 to 18h00, and on weekends until 16h00.
