Elizabeth Square is a huge green park downtown Budapest. This is where we start our night tour. The square is especially vibrant at night where people just enjoy the night by the glowing Ferris wheel or sit by the pools with a beer in their hand.
At the end of Andrássy út, you can find an imposing, open plaza: the Heroes’ Square. The 36 m high Corinthian column dominates the square with Archangel Gabriel on its top holding St. Stephen’s Crown. A semicircled colonnade encompasses the column with statues of Hungarian kings and heroes. Heroes’ Square is one of the top emblematic and most photographed sights of Budapest therefore we stop here for 10 minutes to take some photos.
The fortress of the Citadel is located upon the top of Gellért Hill. The hill received its name after St. Gellért who came to Hungary as a missionary bishop. The fortress was built by the Habsburgs in 1851 to demonstrate their control over the Hungarians. The Citadel is the best place to see the sparkling city of Budapest beneath you, so we take another break here for a few nice shots.
The Chain Bridge spans across the Danube River, joining Buda and Pest. The first permanent majestic stone bridge of Budapest is a beautiful sight at night, guarded by two stone lions on both sides.
We end the evening by taking you to the largest Catholic church of Budapest. It houses Hungary’s most sacred treasure, the first Hungarian king St. Stephen’s mummified right hand. The Basilica is also a significant musical venue, where various concerts are held.
