A very poignant memorial to the women and children who were killed at the side of the Danube by soldiers.

This place is very thought provoking on the banks of the Danube. These poor people must have been terrified and makes you realise how lucky we all are. It’s not a place to visit on a wet day the embankment gets covered in puddles and...More

A visual that reminds you of the sad history of the place, a reminder of World War 2 and the effect it had on people.

It was a beautiful walk along the riverbank. Snow falling and picturesque then you reach the shoes. It’s quite shocking to think how these people died and seeing the toddlers shoes was very hard.

Really moving memorial though I'm not sure the history is always understood. The murderers here were not the Nazi party but the Hungarian Arrow Cross militiamen; it's an important distinction. Located on the banks of the Danube in the center of Budapest's beauty and grandeur,...More

District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube,
with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The
Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica
stand out as two of the finest examples of
architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for
more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval
city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while
the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention

I think that the Budapest Card is good value if you are going to do a lot of the included museums/activities in a short time and travel on public transport all the time. Budapest is a very walkable city. And public transport... More
