Posted on 30 August 2017

Fashion, travel and lifestyle blogger, Stephanie Lim shares her top 10 things to see in Budapest, Hungary.

1. Heroes Square

Known for its iconic statue featuring the Seven Chieftains of the Magyars, the square is located at the end of Andrássy Avenue next to City Park. Around it, you can find the Museum of Fine Arts and the Műcsarnok. Day or night, the square is a marvellous sight to be seen. 

2. St. Stephen Church

While you may come across a number of churches in Budapest, St. Stephen’s Church is one that you definitely would not want to miss, plus it's conveniently located in the city centre. There are plentiful quaint cafes and restaurants around the church, making it a beautiful place to enjoy tea and pastries or a cocktail in the evening.

3. Fisherman Bastion
Also known as The Halászbástya, the neo-Gothic and neo-Romanesque style terrace is situated on the Buda side. Here you can enjoy a panoramic view of the Pest side. 


4. Matthias Church
A Roman Catholic church located in front of the Fisherman's Bastion. It was the second largest church of medieval Buda and the seventh largest church of the medieval Hungarian Kingdom.

5. Holloko Village
A Paloc ethnographic village listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Laying in the valley of Cserhat Mountains, it is surrounded by low peaks and its beautiful natural environment.

6. Castle of Eger
Relive the history of this 13th Century medieval castle by walking alongside the walls and inside the castle. This is a must see as it is a relic of one of the greatest pages in Hungarian history.

7. Lake Balaton

Since Hungary is landlocked, Lake Balaton is often called the "Hungarian Sea". Many visitors descend on Lake Balaton every summer to enjoy the gem like coloured waters. You can take a cruise around the lake or enjoy the view from a nearby restaurant or bar.

8. Szentendre

A riverside town in the Pest side, it is well known for its museums and art galleries. With its historic architecture and easy rail and river access, it has become a popular destination for visitors. 

9. Danube River
Relish in the beautiful night view of Budapest on a night cruise along the Danube River. If you’re travelling with your partner - take a romantic cruise and marvel your special someone with the genuine beauty, and century old grace of Budapest. The river cruise is one of the highlights of many Budapest holidays without a doubt!

10. Liberty Statue
Another must see is The Liberty Statue also known as Freedom Statue. It is a monument located on Gellért Hill that commemorates those who sacrificed their lives for the independence, freedom, and prosperity of Hungary. The 14m tall bronze statue stands atop a 26m pedestal and holds a palm leaf signifying peace. From here, you’ll be able to view the whole Pest side.
