Budapest River Cruises For Over 50s

Discover a city of two halves on a Budapest River Cruise

Hungary’s capital Budapest is a city made up of two parts: Buda and Pest, built on opposite banks of the Danube. The cities have been officially united since 1873, but they are still very different in character.

Buda is the older and more graceful, with its cobbled streets, medieval architecture and UNESCO-listed Buda Castle, while Pest is the administrative and commercial centre, with wide avenues, 19th-century public buildings and the vast City Park where you’ll find the neo-Baroque Széchenyi thermal baths.
