Budapest in 2 days
The Hungarian capital is revered by gourmets, artists, musicians and antiquity lovers. In this city, every street becomes a real discovery, and any building can shake to the core and seem unique and one of a kind. Of course, you won't be able to get around all of Budapest in 2 days, but to find yourself, for example, in the century before last or to find the goulash of your dreams is quite real.
Ascension to the palace
The best place to start your sightseeing is the Royal Palace. Firstly, it is unusually beautiful and majestic, and secondly, the ride on the funicular that takes tourists to the top of the hill is an exciting enterprise in itself. This vehicle is more than 140 years old, but it functions properly and shows magnificent views throughout its route. In a couple of minutes, the mighty Danube and its cozy banks in the area of old Pest have time to flash through the windows of the trailers..
If we continue the theme of urban transport, which has become an independent tourist attraction in Budapest, the city metro takes an equally important place in it. It started working in 1896 and became the first in the whole continental Europe.
Each city has its own business cards, which become objects of photo sessions for every tourist, without exception. In Budapest, in 2 days they usually visit the building of the Hungarian Parliament and take pictures on the Chain Bridge that hobbled the Danube and connects Pest and Buda. Parliament looks best from the opposite bank, and the best time for memorable pictures on the bridge is in the early morning or evening hours..
For the regulars of museums, Budapest is ready to tell so much in 2 days that other exhibitions cannot even in a year! Its National Museum is a treasure trove both literally and figuratively. Franz Liszt's grand piano and Marie-Antoinette's harp are kept here, its halls cherish the mantle of St. Stephen and ancient weapons.
A visit to the Museum of Fine Arts, where the main highlight of the exhibition are the canvases by El Greco and Brueghel, gives gourmets a genuine pleasure from painting..
Exhibits from Budapest antique shops are of no less historical interest. Here you can buy everything: from a thimble to a sofa, and if the time of your visit to Budapest for 2 days coincided with the last Sunday of the month, the traveler was incredibly lucky. On this day, a real flea market rages on Erzbet Ter square.
