Landmark Tourist Spot
The oldest part of Budapest, Main Square (Fo ter) sits surrounded by Baroque buildings and a number of cafes, restaurants, and pubs. Notable buildings include the city hall and a museum--a former palace of the founders of the town. Look for the cross, which stands as a testimonial for plague survivors. The square also features a sculpture of the first city mayor and a group of bronze female figures with umbrellas. Board a regular passenger boat, which will take you along the river back to Budapest, providing a different perspective of the city.

  • Inspired by a trip on the river Danube, we were round-trip boat up to Szentendre. You can go to the morning and return in the afternoon. Ancient village dating construction of late 17TH century and early 18th, among other reasons by émigrés Serbs and maybe Greeks, fleeing the Ottoman domination. It is a journey to a distant past, where he meets old houses, maintained or restored neatly. Its streets are mostly cobblestone and hills. Many restaurants of all types (lunch at Elizabeth), good shops of souvenirs and local handicrafts whose origins are not all of Hungarian ancestries. Originally were Serb merchants who offered services. The monument in the main square and the Fo-ter is a tribute by the reception received. Original and pleasant stay. Frequented by tourists.
