Pearl of the Danube
You might consider the city of Budapest, divided by the Danube River into two distinctive cities--Buda and Pest--to be essentially one large World Heritage Site.On the 10th (Wed), snap pictures at Szechenyi Lanchid, then pause for some serene contemplation at St. Stephen's Basilica (Szent Istvan Bazilika), then get a sense of history and politics at Hungarian Parliament Building, and finally steep yourself in history at Liberty Statue. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 11th (Thu): contemplate the long history of Matthias Church, don't miss a visit to Fisherman's Bastion, explore the world behind art at Hungarian National Gallery (Magyar Nemzeti Galeria), then see the interesting displays at House of Terror Museum, and finally appreciate the history behind Heroes' Square.
