Cruising the Danube from Budapest

By John Reality, Cambodia, October 2012

One of the best ways to experience the best that Budapest has to offer is via one of the profusion of river cruises that ply the waters of the Danube River when the weather permits. The river bisects the city into two distinct parts: the hilly and peaceful Buda on one side, and the buzzing congestion of Pest on the other. Both banks offer many sights, including the graceful tower of the Matthias Church, the Fishermen’s Bastion, and the historic Castle District.

Nighttime cruises often feature dinner and drinks, and can be an affordable option for an evening of sightseeing, entertainment and romantic ambiance. Hungarian folk-dances and classical music concerts are the order of the day (or rather, night), with performances on most cruises beginning around 8pm (the typical cruise lasts several hours).
