Unique atmosphere in Budapest – a place where you can sit down and just enjoy the city: the Danube Promenade
The Danube Promenade is located between Elisabeth Bridge and the Széchenyi Chain Bridge and it is a perfect place for a short walk along the Danube. You can see many of Budapest’s sights from here. On the Buda side you can see the Palace or the Liberty Statue at the top of the Gellért Hill, or even the Fisherman’s Bastion.
In case you get tired or just need something to drink, there are plenty of excellent restaurants and bars along the Danube Promenade. It is a good idea to visit this part of Budapest when the weather is good, because it is a bustling area and the night lights are also spectacular.
Festival atmosphere at the Liberty Bridge – if you are looking for a bustling place.
One of the best things in Budapest is that Liberty Bridge is sometimes only available for pedestrians. This is when there is a festival atmosphere with lots of interesting activities for those who visit the bridge. Try yoga, have a picnic or you can even witness a wedding ceremony!
The bridge is now pedestrianized for a couple of weekends every summer – which means you’ll have the opportunity to take part in this unique event in the heart of Budapest.
The Vajdahunyad Castle – a romantic place in Budapest, even for a walk
The history of the castle goes back to 1896, when Hungarians wanted to erect a building for the celebration of the turn of the millennium – they wanted to display Hungarian architecture in a three-dimensional form. The castle was designed by Alpár Ignác who wanted a romantic building with a touch of history: its different parts display different styles, including Gothic, Romanesque, Renaissance and Baroque. The building itself was inspired by the Gothic Castle of Vajdahunyad, located in Transylvania.
Yes, we’ve already mentioned the City Park, but the castle is also there and we just can’t get enough of it. If you are looking for a romantic place in Budapest with your partner, don’t miss the castle!
