Budapest is the ideal location for a jam-packed city break, and although I’d recommend a couple of days to completely explore what this Hungarian city has to offer, this 24hour guide includes the absolute best sights and attractions that you must explore if you decide to travel there.

Firstly, Budapest is split into two by the Danube river, Buda and Pest. Begin your morning in Pest which is much flatter and although there’s plenty to explore here I’d narrow it down to the two most fascinating buildings: Parliament building and St Stephens Basilica. If time and budget allow you can enter these buildings, however admiring from outside is just as nice. Once you’ve finished exploring there’s an abundance of delicious and affordable restaurants around the Basilica to try.

In the afternoon, make your way across to Buda, crossing the Danube river on the famous Chain Bridge. Firstly, take the traditional funicular up to Buda castle, there’s a perfect photo opportunity at the top.On the Buda side my favourite sites are the Fisherman’s Bastion and a hike up Gellert Hill. The perfect end to your day is a river cruise on the Danube to see the Parliament building at night and trying a traditional chimney cake.
