Your Budapest Perfect Itinerary (Day 2)
1. St. Stephen’s Basilica
Get ready to start exploring the city in the early morning to catch the sunrise by St Stephen’s Basilica. Nice walking around at 7a.m. without all the tourists usually flocking this area. St. Stephen’s Basilica is the largest church in Budapest, also the world’s top ten most photographed buildings. It is so beautiful!
2. Vörösmarty tér
Vörösmarty tér is the city’s focal square, the site of Budapest’s main Christmas market, its most café/confectionery Gerbeaud and, in the same prominent building, the only restaurant in town granted two Michelin stars, Onyx. We went there on December and yeah.. Christmas market was the main attraction destination at that time.
3. Little Princess Statue
Little Princess (Kis Kiralylany) by Laszlo Marton: it must be one of the most photographed statues (it not THE one) in Budapest.
4. Great Market Hall
Pop in the Great Market Hall in Budapest to admire its splendid architecture, and buy authentic Hungarian souvenirs. You can buy souvenirs, meat, fruits, and almost everything with reasonable price. I bought souvenirs such as Budapest logo shirt, magnet, and key chains here.
5. Gellert Hill (Catching Sunset)
Gellert Hill offers one of the best panoramic views of Budapest. Besides the vista, there are many other attractions to see. From the top, you get unrivaled views the Danube river and both sides of the city- Buda and Pest.
6. Buda Castle
I never get tired of the beautiful Chain Bridge connecting Pest to Buda. It was so amazing to take a panoramic view of Pest side from Buda Castle.
8. Fisherman’s Bastion
