The Budapest Sightseeing Tour with a Parliament House visit combines two very popular tours, a detailed tour of Budapest top sights and a fascinating guided tour of the Hungary’s largest building, the Parliament.
The Neo-Gothic Parliament took several years to construct, with 40 million bricks, half a million precious stones and 40 kg of gold. The tour will give a commentary and historical background while guiding you through the splendid Session Room, the impressive central staircase and the wonderful Great Vaulted Hall.
After your visit to one of Budapest’s finest architectural achievements, sit back and enjoy viewing the most fascinating sights Budapest has to offer. You’ll cross the Danube via Margaret Bridge and take a drive to the Royal Castle on the Buda side of the city, in the Castle District. Here you will also get a chance to see the white-stoned, Fishermen’s Bastion and Matthias Church. From this point there are great panorama views and you can view ships cruising the Danube, the gentle slopes of the Castle Hill, the fresh green of the Margaret Island, and all the Pest side.
After visiting the Castle District, you’ll see the Citadel at the top of Gellert Hill and you’ll cross Elizabeth Bridge and drive by City Park to take a walk at Heroes’ Square. Passing by the Opera and St. Stephen’s Basilica, the tour concludes at the Hotel Intercontinental.
