Full description
Your tour begins at the Holy Trinity Statue, from where you walk around the magnificent Matthias Church - built in the splendid Gothic style of the 15th century. Next to the cathedral you can admire the Fishermen's Bastion, a fantastic fairy tale structure offering the best view over the Danube and the Hungarian Parliament building. After a pleasant walk on the old cobble-stone streets, leave the residential district to travel to the President's Palace and the Royal Palace complexes. Walk around the courtyards and fountains, and look at the proud guards outside the palace. From the royal terraces you can enjoy the the most stunning views of the other side of the city across the majestic Danube River, with full views of its main bridges: Margaret Bridge, Chain Bridge, Elizabeth Bridge, and Liberty Bridge. After walking back from the Royal Palace, explore the other side of the castle. From the medieval walls you have an excellent view towards the Buda Hills - the western part of the city with its forests and nature parks. Your tour later ends at the tour starting point at the Holy Trinity Statue, in front of the Matthias Church.
