9 Historic Sites in District V / Inner City That You Shouldn't Miss

August 23, 2021 Mikaela Didonna

Over 15 million gallons of water bubble daily into Budapest's 118 springs and boreholes. The city of spas offers an astounding array of baths, from the sparkling Gellert Baths to the vast 1913 neo-baroque Szechenyi Spa to Rudas Spa, a dramatic 16th-century Turkish pool with original Ottoman architecture. The "Queen of the Danube" is also steeped in history, culture and natural beauty. Get your camera ready for the Roman ruins of the Aquincum Museum, Heroes' Square and Statue Park, and the 300-foot dome of St. Stephen's Basilica.

Shoes on the Danube Bank

Reviewed By Tiberius_C_Bud - Budapest, Hungary

Located in the vicinity of the Hungarian Parliament (in the direction of the Chain Bridge), on the banks of the Danube, the shoes along the promenade is a memorial to all those shot into the Danube by the Arrow Cross militia. You'll see big and small shoes, boots, elegant shoes, children's shoes, etc. symbolizing the fact that no one was spared. The place is symbolic inasmuch as that wasn't the only spot where the executions took place, but in several other places along the banks of the river. It's especially touching during sunset and evening.

Hungarian Academy of Sciences

Reviewed By goodmichael

Beautiful Renaissance building on a great spot next to Danube. At night, when all major sites at the river are bathed in light, is part of the spectacular setting. Almost next to it is famous Gresham Palace, built in Secession style, very different, interesting to compere. Must see in Budapest.
