River Bus

Type: Budapest tours, Top attractions

Duration: 2 hours

Live guide language: English, German, French, Italian, Spanish

 

Program of the tour:

  • Our journey begins where our country’s most clever and wise people work. The Hungarian Academy Of Sciences Academy was founded by Count István Széchenyi after whom the Széchenyi Chain Bridge starting from the square was also named. 
  • The first place of interest on our tour is the St. Stephen’s Basilica named after Hungary’s first King, St. Stephen. In the basilica the mummified right hand, alias the Holy Right Hand of our state-founding King is kept.
  • The Synagogue is the second sight to see on the RiverRide tour on the Dohány (Tobacco) Street which holds 3000 people. Hollywood star, the late Tony Curtis who was of Hungarian descent has made a contribution to its renovation. 
  • On Andrássy Avenue, among the world’s leading fashion brands we can see the Opera House which is where an inn of dubious fame used to be. It was built with permission from Austrian Emperor Franz Josef  on condition that it must be smaller than the Vienna Opera House.
  • Leaving the Oktogon and Kodály Circus, at the end of Andrássy Avenue we arrive to the Millennium Monument on Heroes’ Square, which was built in the place of a fountain at the time of the Budapest World Exhibition. 
  • Splash: RiverRide’s amphibous bus provides an interesting experience not only for its passengers but also for onlookers by the banks of the Danube. Many people are attracted to the moment when at the end of the 70 meter long ramp the floating bus splashes into the water.
  • We turn back at the oldest bridge of the Hungarian reach of the Danube. Probably there isn’t any other bridge in the world that was in danger of desctruction as many times as the Széchenyi Chain Bridge. 
  • After everyone has appreciated the beauty of Margaret Island, listened to interesting facts about the Danube and the RiverRide amphibious bus, leaving Margaret Bridge behind we arrive to the building whose price and number of bedrooms was jokingly asked by Queen’s legendary singer, Freddy Mercury in 1986. By the way from the costs of the Parliament Building a city of 35.000-40.000 people could have been built at the beginning of the 20th Century.
  • The Citadella does not feature in our official tour, however when we are approaching the Chain Bridge, you can see our number one reserve target from the Danube.
  • While those sitting on the left side of the bus take delight in the Parliament, people sitting on the right won’t be bored either. They can admire the part of Budapest that was besieged by Tartars, Austrians, Soviets and Hungarians, whose citizens excommunicated the Pope, was occupied by the Turkish using tricks and stayed for 150 years after which they settled Germans there, and was bombed during World War Two. Besides all this its citizens and kings have built and embellished the Royal Palace, which of course can be seen by our left side passangers after the floating bus has turned around.
