There are weeks worth of things to do in Budapest. Aside from some of the others I’ve mentioned, like the baths, the nightlife, etc, of course. Here’s a quick run-down on some of the other things.
- Climb Buda hill and visit the palace on the top. You can take the tram up – they call it a funicular. It was built in 1870 but it still serves the purpose. There’s a church up there, too and several small cafes.
- Walk along the Pest side of the Danube and look across to the Buda side. Start at the Parliament building and end whenever you get tired of seeing the sights.
- Visit the Parliament and take a tour. I hear it’s very nice, though tickets sell out quickly.
- Have a cappuccino and a torta at the Gerbeaud. It’s pricey for Budapest, at around $8, but well worth it. The place has been in business since the 1860s so they must know something about making good treats.
