Budapest, Chain Bridge, 1011 Hungary
Budapest is one of those cities that’s even more stunning when seen from the water. Géllert Hill and majestic Castle Hill, with its striking white Fisherman’s Bastion and Matthias Church, rise on the Buda side. On the Pest side, the waterfront is dominated by Art Nouveau and 19th-century palaces, as well as the neo-Gothic Parliament, whose fanciful façade, reflected in the Danube, is one of the world’s most stunning works of art.
As in Paris, it’s a joy to get up close to the city’s bridges, especially the imposing Chain Bridge and the delicate Elisabeth Bridge (named after the Austrian empress Sisi, who loved Hungary and spent much time in Budapest).
