After a long day of walking, we concluded our day at RAQPART. It’s a great outdoor bar by the river with lovely views of Citadella and Chain Bridge. Enjoying the sunset, with a Sangria and amazing hosts, it can’t get better than this :)
You are sure to stumble upon this iconic war memorial while taking a walk by the Danube. There are 60 pairs of iron shoes, pointed towards the river in the memory of Jews who lost their lives during WW2.
5. SZÉCHENYI CHAIN BRIDGEBudapest’s most famous bridge, the beautiful Chain Bridge spans over Danube. It was the first bridge to connect Buda with Pest, and today stands as an icon of the city.Interesting fact: The bridge has stone lions sitting on either side and it’s believed that the lions do not have a tongue because the sculptor forgot to create it. When the rumor got unfolded, the sculptor committed suicide by jumping into Danube from the bridge.Look out for the tongue that costed this famous sculptor life when you're there. ????
Fisherman’s Bastion is located on the Buda side of the city. You can either choose to walk to take a bus. We took bus #16 from Deak Square and it took us about 20 mins to get to this place. The place offers panoramic views of Budapest and you can see Hungarian Parliament from every corner of it. We also tried Trdelnk, a Czech delicacy also known as the Chimney cake at the Halászbástya Restaurant while enjoying the views of the parliament set on Danube.
From here, we went to ST. STEPHEN’S BASILICAThis is located right in the heart of the city and like most churches in Europe, this it’s beautiful and massive. There’s no entrance fee as such, but they have a place where you can give donations by the entrance.Tip: Have some coins ready beforehand and place them in the donation box as you enter the church.
