Enjoy an eventful program full of history, memorable sights and some of the most beautiful locations in Budapest!
The Hungarian Parliament is the third largest parliament building of the world and one of the most recognised landmarks of Hungary. Built in 1904 by Imre Steindl in a peculiar Eclectic style mixed with Neo-Gothic details it is currently the largest building of the country.  Tours are available throughout the day from  11AM , 11.15 AM and 11.30 AM. (Starting depends on the date.)
A guide will take you around the gigantic halls of the House of Parliament while sharing the secrets of its past. You will even have a chance to explore the hall of the National Assembly and to lay your eyes on the holiest relics of Hungarian history, the Holy Crown and the crowning jewels.
Following the Parliament tour you will have a truly one-of-a-kind experience at the pier nearby.
Explore the world’s oldest remaining monitor ship right next to the House of Parliament, the Lajta Monitor Museum Ship! This once deadly metal giant was built in 1871 and has been floating on the Danube ever since although it hasn’t been causing much trouble lately. Enjoy its imposing sight with your own two eyes from inside and outside on an in-depth smartphone-guided tour where you can learn about the stories, the Lajta is not able to tell you itself. And believe us, this old veteran has gone through some breathtaking adventures back in its days.
Get comfortable after the historical ventures and familiarize yourself with the panoramic side of the city on a scenic river cruise on the Danube. As our company’s, enjoy a complementary bowl of tasty Gulash Soup or Chicken Paprikash on board.
