Seeing Parliament and the many buildings of Buda and Pest require a boat trip as well as hop on hop off bus. Boat gives you a perspective you otherwise would miss.

The views from either side of the river are beautiful. The view changes at night as all of the buildings and bridges are lit up. It is absolutely beautiful. If you get a chance take a night cruise on the river.

Must take a boat ride on the Danube river and stop at Margit Island for a few hours. Get to see both Buda and Pest from the river.

We got a short river trip with our bus tour, and it gives a great view of Parliament Building, Buda Castle and the chain bridge amongst others, especially on a sunny day. Wanted to do it at night too but ran out of time.

Budapest is situated in middle of the city dividing into Buda and Pest. There are numerous sitting option along the banks. We sat here for a long time just absorbing the views. If we had had enough time, we would have loved to sit here...More
