We then take you across the Elisabeth Bridge to Pest and show you the famous Central Market Hall, followed by the largest Synagogue of Europe and the City Park. We pass by Europe’s largest thermal spa and the Budapest Zoo, after which we stop at the Heroes’ Square (with statues of the most famous Hungarian kings and dukes).

During the tour we offer a brief overview of the last 1000 years of Hungarian history.

About 18:30 we start an amazing 2 hour-long river cruise on the Danube. During the dinner you can admire the magnificent panorama of Budapest, which was added to the World Cultural Heritage List by UNESCO. According to their justification, the banks of the Danube at Budapest also illustrate the various periods of the capital's history, and furthermore the city has one of the world's outstandingly beautiful urban cityscapes. The World Heritage site inscribed in 1987 stretched from the Chain Bridge (Clark Ádám Square) to the Technical University on the Buda side - an area containing the Gellért Baths, Gellért Mountain with its Freedom Monument and the Citadella, and also the building ensemble of the Buda Castle.
