4 things to do close to the Danube
The Danube represents the main avenue of Budapest. You will find all along the river's banks all sorts of prestigious and well-designed buidings, great-looking apartments as well as some of the most beautiful churches of the whole country. Budapest and Danube histories can hardly be separated, and their are great stories still to be written.
The second biggest river of the continent suggests various possibilities to be enjoyed. Consequently, we specifically designed a home-made selection of relaxing-or-not ways to benefit from one of the most precious treasure in central Europe. Let's get into it!
1. A relaxing walk/ride on the banks
We concede it, here is definitely not the most original or even exclusive option ever designed. Never the less it remains the simplest way to spend a relaxing and how precious time in family, or even to find oneself in a connected but quiete environment at the end of the day. We advise you to start your walk near the Gellért hotel and then follow the river going North, passing one bridge after the other. What about admiring Buda's castle, the fisherman's bastion, Matthias church as well as the parliament, which is even more nice looking from Buda side?
NB: In order to avoid tourist jam, we recommend the end of the day or the morning to go for your ride.

3. Cross the Danube by boat
Is there any better way to enjoy a river than getting at it? There are further options to, but as swimming is forbiden, we recommand you to take the boat.
Why ? Because here and the Balaton lac are more or less the only places to take the boat in Hungary
How ? You will find dedicated boats
on the blanks, but public transportations
can also bring you form one side to the other for a symbolic cost. Would it be relevant to miss such an opportunity?
