With this audio guide we will take you to the most important sights on the Pest side of Budapest on the UNESCO World Heritage Danube River. With the help of our map, you will always know where you are.

Since you will certainly want to take a closer look at some of the sights without any time pressure, you should take half a day for the tour.

Of course, it's entirely up to you to skip any of the points if you don't have the time or inclination to see a certain point. On this tour you are the boss and determine the duration and pace yourself!

Budapest, the capital of Hungary, was created in 1873 by the merger of three cities: Buda, Óbuda and Pest. Today we will explore the Pest part of this triad. During the Middle Ages, Pest was an independent city separate from Buda, and was an important economic center during the 11th–13th centuries. Pest was destroyed in 1241 by the Mongol invasion of Hungary, but was rebuilt soon thereafter. Demographically, in the 15th century Pest was mostly Hungarian, while Buda across the Danube had a German-majority population. In 1838 Pest was flooded by the Danube; parts of the city were under as much as eight feet of water, and the flood destroyed or seriously damaged three-fourths of the city’s buildings.

On your tour, you will relive the grandeur of the turn of the 20th century in the Hungarian Parliament Building, the Postal Savings Bank, Gresham’s Palace, Central Market Hall, Vigadó Concert Hall, and the Hungarian State Opera. You will be able to immerse yourself in the arts atthe magnificent Hungarian Museum of Fine Art, Hungarian House of Photography, Robert Capa Contemporary Photography Center, and the Franz Liszt Memorial Museum. Explore two different UNESCO World Heritage sites on the Promenade on the Danube and Andrassy Avenue. More traces from the turn of the century are on your itinerary today at Saint Stephens Basilica. 

As we continue our trip through this awe-inspiring city will visit the relaxing waters of Széchenyi Thermal Bath in the City Park with Hero’s Square, Vajdahunyad Castle and the Budapest Zoo and Botanical Gardens. On this tour we will also take a glimpse some of the more tragic sides of history in the Jewish Quarter and the House of Terror. 

As we take you along to the most interesting sites, you will also pass some places whose admission is not free of charge. It is best to listen to the informative audio commentary beforehand and decide for yourself whether a stroll from the outside will satisfy your curiosity or whether you would like to take a closer peek inside. 

Does all of this make you curious?

Well then, let's go!
