Travel guide

You only need to stroll briefly on a Budapest holiday to catch some of the city’s incredible architecture like the Hungarian Parliament building, St. Stephen’s Basilica and Buda Castle. Instead of taking the stairs up to Buda Castle, hop on the funicular. Not only a quick and fun way to travel, you’ll get fantastic views of the city while you ascend Castle Hill as well as enjoying part of the city’s history as the funicular dates back to 1870.
