Budapest's extensive subway network is an essential part of getting around the city. Ever-innovative Budapest was the first on continental Europe to have an underground, the Millenium Underground is even featured in our “Spice of Europe” movie The various stations and tunnels are still mysterious and are filled with interesting facts. A leisurely guided tour along the stations can tell you all you may want to knowand a whole lot more.
Walking down the Duna Corso, the riverside section on the Pest side in the central area of the city, has so much to offer. Part of the UNESCO World Heritage, this area has some of the most notable landmarks of the city, a great view of the Castle District and the Chain Bridge, passes by the magnificent Vigadó concert hall building and offers you a chance to take a selfie with some of Budapest’s favorite statues.
If you’re up for another leisurely stroll along the Danube, head out to see the National Theater and its sibling cultural institution, the Müpa the Palace of Arts. This stretch of the riverside is very peaceful with few people but does offer a grand view of the river and the theater building.
