A cafe, filled with cats! It’s not the most delicious of places, but if you want to pay a little kitty... this is the place for you.

A very interesting, touching place.

It’s a free, small museum with interesting things about the parliament building process. Also, we caught a changing of the guards!

Budapest Parliament Embankment

One of the most famous bridges in Budapest

There will be other options, such as buses that go up to the Castle Hill, but we opted for the more authentic experience. It was really nice, and it was not that more expensive than the buses.

It’s a pretty simple, homely restaurant. Not the most amazing food.

Very pretty! Have to go there before the dark

It is a little weird, but it is not free to get on the bastion itself to see the views of Budapest. I don’t remember the price, but it is not expensive. When we went, we barely got there on time (the cash desks closed at 16:00), so beware!
