I was organising my Beautiful Budapest photographs last week and found some real gems. My Art Nouveau tour is really very popular, I understand why, the buildings are magnificent, the stories are very interesting and there is so much amazing symbolism about the Hungarian Art Nouveau. Here is a little gallery of my top favourite Budapest Art Nouveau details.

I’m spending a lot of time in Budapest every day, I consider myself very lucky to be able to see the changing of seasons, and I try to capture those special moments. Have a look at this photo gallery to see the four different faces of the Buda Castle Garden Bazaar in spring, summer, autumn and winter. Book a Buda Castle Walking tour with me to see the beautiful Royal Gardens for yourself!

 

We were very fortunate with my travellers and got invited to the very top of the Buda Castle district, to the rooftop skybar of the Hilton Hotel. I highly recommend the White Raven Skybar, views are amazing and I can guarantee you’ll have a very good time. Don’t forget to reserve in advance!

Every private tour is different, the tour itinerary is fully customisable according to your interests and preferences. Watch this video to get a general idea of what you can expect when you book a full-day walking or driving tour with me. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with me may you need further information. See you soon in Beautiful Budapest!

 

The National Museum is one of the oldest museums of Budapest, founded by Ferenc Széchényi in 1802. It’s one of my favourite museums in the city, not only because it’s beautiful (both the outside and the interiors) but also because there is a beautiful garden around it which serves as a public park. The museum is a special place for Hungarian people, our entire history is on display in an easily digestible manner.

The building is a special place for national pride and heritage, the 1848-49 Hungarian war of independence against the Habsburgs started here, poet Sándor Petőfi read his famous poem on the stairs of the museum.

There are permanent and temporary exhibitions, the coronation robe of the Hungarian kings is on display here, too. A great place to spend a few hours in Budapest in the cold month of January.

I’m posting a lot about the Fisherman’s Bastion, not only because it’s very unique and beautiful, but also, because this is probably the most popular tourist attraction of Budapest. Thousands of people are taking pictures here every day, sometimes you have to wait in line to get a good spot. The line to buy tickets to go to the upper level – that I highly recommend – is usually long, but you can skip the line buying your tickets online. When time permits I take my travellers to the very top to enjoy the views.

It’s very rare to see the Fisherman’s Bastion deserted, with only a very few people around, but I was lucky this week to be the only one on top of Budapest.

I’m taking thousands of pictures in Budapest every year, and many of them are taken at the very same spot. This is the upper station of the Buda Castle Funicular, close to the Sándor Palace and the Royal Palace. While my travellers are entertained by the changing of the guards, I’m taking pictures. Have a look, how different the pictures are even though they are taken at the same place. Join me for a walk in the Buda Castle District to see it for yourself!

 

This truly magnificent Neo-Renaissance building is on Andrássy street, right across from the State Opera House. I keep telling stories about the building, home of Drechsler Café, that was originally built for the pensioners of the National Rail Services. For many many long years the building was hiding behind scaffolding and recently it reopened as the W hotel. I hope you agree with me when I say that the renovators made a wonderful job and filled the palace with elegance and charm.

 

Thank you for all your great reviews and comments, it’s always a pleasure to read your kind words. And, I’m very proud to announce that I just got this very special award from Tripadvisor – Travelers’ Choice 2023.

I’m truly happy and promise to do my best to help you collect the nicest memories while I’m showing you around my Beautiful Budapest. And please keep sharing your comments!
