Budapest is one of the most beautiful and majestic European capitals. A bridge between Eastern and Western Europe and blessed with natural beauty, the queen of Danube River, it is able to satisfy the most discerning tourist taste.

It is hard to tell when Budapest is most beautiful - during the day, when you can enjoy the panoramic views and numerous attractions, or at night when bathed in light and the life there boils. During your bus tour there you will see that its magnetism lies in the full of attractions parks, in museums preserving different treasures, in boating on the Danube offering views of the architectural masterpieces of the two banks, as well as thermal baths from Ottoman time, offering a few hours oblivion.

Budapest is unpredictable and unforgettable - perfect for a bus tour. It is the capital of Hungary and covers an area of 525 square kilometers in the central part of the country. It is surrounded by the autonomous region of Pest and is split by the Danube. The city consists of two historic cities - Buda (right bank of the Danube) and Pest (on left).
