Budapest Late Night Danube River Cruise, Hungary

It is already 10 o'clock at night but you don't feel like coming back to your hotel just yet? If you are travelling to Budapest, you may want to join the Budapest Late Night Danube river cruise which starts at 10pm. The river cruise will bring you around to see a lot of famous historical sites, bridges and buildings in Budapest. Let's start the cruise, shall we?

The fun thing about Budapest at night is that all the historical sites and bridges are lit. This makes the cruise even more enjoyable. For instance, we can see the Liberty Bridge in Budapest. It is the shortest bridge of Budapest and it was built for the Millennium World Exhibition in 1896.

Next on our list is Buda Castle, which we visited before during our adventure in Buda Castle Hills

After the castle, we passed by another famous bridge in Budapest, the Chain Bridge. It is a suspension bridge that spans the river Danube between Buda and Pest, the western and eastern sides of Budapest.

Moving on right along, we are now at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. It is the most important and prestigious learned society of Hungary. It has the responsibilities to cultivate science, disseminate scientific findings, support research and development and represent Hungarian science domestically and around the world. I wonder if science is a popular career choice in Hungary.

My favourite historical site in Budapest is gotta be the Hungarian Parliament Building, which is one of Europe's oldest legislative buildings. It is also currently the largest and the highest building in Budapest.
