Photos From A Budapest Boat Cruise – Estimated reading time: 4 minutes
Do you believe in love at first sight? I know that do. However, I’m not talking about two people falling head over heels in love with one another but rather travellers falling in love with a destination.
These destinations overwhelm you and in a good way. They bring joyful tears to your eyes. Suddenly, reality’s better than anything you could have ever dreamed. You find yourself so happy that it’s hard to fall asleep at night. Reluctantly you board the plane home and sadness lingers for weeks and months on end, as you mourn the separation. Returning becomes your single obsession.
Who’s my great love? None other than the beautiful city of Budapest. I first visited in December 2011 and knew right away that I’d come back. I’ve returned so many times since then, I’ve lost count.
Photos From A Budapest Boat Cruise
On one of visits, I finally got a chance to take a Budapest boat cruise along the Danube. You’ll whiz past the stunning Parliament building, the architectural marvel that is the Chain Bridge, and Buda’s massive Castle District.
I’d also recommend that after you do a daytime boat cruise, do it all over again and take a Budapest boat cruise at night. Taking one of these cruises along the Danube is fairly cheap and perfect activity for any budget traveler.

Budapest is one of my favorite cities in Europe – very underrated! A cruise along the Danube through Budapest and the 3 other European capitals on its banks would be fun (even though I am not a big fan of cruises, I like the idea of river cruises)
@Jeremy – I feel the same about Budapest. There’s something quite special about the city. I’m not much of a cruise person either … but this one lasted less then an hour and was really cheap so it was bearable! 🙂
We didn’t do a boat cruise – looks awesome! Love the B/W pics!!
@Andrea – thanks. It’s a nice and easy way to see more of the city!
@Emily – an underrated city if you ask me and I’ve seen people write about how they don’t like it … I couldn’t imagine why anyone could dislike Budapest at all.
What a great set of shots and love the different angles. You’ve convinced me to go. It’s not as overrun with tourists as Prague is it??
@Leigh – there are a lot of tourists as anywhere else in Europe, but I didn’t find it as crazy as Prague. And glad I was able to convince you to visit! 🙂
I have felt this way about London, Prague, and Buenos Aires. I need to find a cheaper place to fall in love with 🙂
@Stephanie – Ha ha! I need to spend some proper time in London soon. And God, how I long to go back to Budapest!
This city is magnificent. Every bridge presents the whole generation with its customs and views. Everyone should visit it! 🙂 And don’t forget to taste marzipan, it’s more than simply delicious!
Budapest is definitely on my list. Nice photos – I love the shot with the church.
@Don – thanks so much! 🙂
Love the b&w photos and I believe in love at first sight (with a destination) as well! Haven’t”met” Budapest yet, so our love affair is TBA.
@Laurel – Thanks! Hope you make it there soon.
Cheryl, lovely blog… Will take all your tips for the trip… Just a week and a half to go!!!
Cheryl, I love how you’ve used black-and-white and/or sepia to keep things simple and to highlight just how pretty the city skyline and architecture are. I’ve been to Budapest only once, but posts like these are a great reminder why the place is worth visiting. Thanks for your post!
@Ángela – thank you so much for visiting. Glad you like my blog. Will send you tips soon! I hope you’ll love Budapest as mush as me. 🙂
@Fotoeins – thanks! The pics look soooo much better in B/W. The day I took those shots it was really sunny and bright making the colored ones look washed out …
Lovely photos and post. Thank you for it! 🙂
Thanks for reading guys! xo
