Budapest— 1 night
Pearl of the Danube
You might consider the city of Budapest, divided by the Danube River into two distinctive cities--Buda and Pest--to be essentially one large World Heritage Site.On the 10th (Wed), snap pictures at Szechenyi Chain Bridge, then take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Stephen's Basilica (Szent Istvan Bazilika), then ponder the world of politics at Parliament, and finally contemplate the long history of Liberty Statue. Here are some ideas for day two: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Matthias Church, contemplate the long history of Fisherman's Bastion, then explore the world behind art at Hungarian National Gallery (Magyar Nemzeti Galeria), then see the interesting displays at House of Terror Museum, and finally appreciate the history behind Hősök tere.
