A romantic place in Budapest in the nature: the Gellért Hill – a place from where you can see the entire city
The Gellért Hill is one of the most popular places of Budapest because it offers a marvellous panorama. The Gellért Hill is part of the Buda Mountains with the biggest part located in the 11th district of Budapest, and some part of it in the 1st district.
From here you can see the Elisabeth Bridge to the northeast and the Liberty Bridge to the southeast.
The construction of the Citadella on the top of the hill was ordered by Haynau in 1851. The hill used to be part of the Buda wine region and this is why it was used by farmers to produce grape. If you are not afraid of a little physical exercise, walk to the top of the Gellért Hill and enjoy the view of the city.
A romantic place in Budapest close to the river: the bank of the Danube – let the night lights of the city charm you
There is a wonderful view from the steps between Margaret Bridge and the building of the Parliament on both sides of the Danube.
Just sit down here on a summer night with your partner and a bottle of wine and enjoy the romantic atmosphere. The view of the banks of the Danube in Budapest has been included in the UNESCO World Heritage list since 1987.
If the banks aren’t enough for you, get on a boat and experience the city from a completely new perspective. We tend to travel to work by car or public transport, but this is a perfect moment to try a boat and see the city from that!
There are multiple boats travelling the Danube every day, and you can use these with a Budapest public transport ticket for free.
A romantic place with flowers and plants in Budapest: the botanic garden (Füvészkert) where you can enjoy the beauties of nature
The botanic garden of Budapest was the first botanic garden in Hungary. It has been a part of the ELTE University since 2006. It is located in the 8th district, in Illés utca 25. It used to have a number of different locations before the current one, but it has been here since 1847.
It is very popular among Hungarians because a famous novel of Móra Ferenc, the Pál utcai fiúk is set in this neighbourhood, around the botanic garden. The botanic garden boasts about eight thousand different species in an area of 3.1 hectares with a total area of 2000 square metres for greenhouses.
Currently, the most important aim of the garden is to aid education and scientific researches. This is also a place where you can learn a lot about environmental protection. Guides are available at the botanic harden and occasionally there are various activities as well.
