Day 4 - Budapest
Join a guided tour through one of the most beautiful cities in Europe where you will cross the iconic Chain bridge, spanning the Danube, linking Buda and Pest and guarded by two lion sculptures at each end. Continue down Andrassy Avenue to visit Heroes’ Square, the monument built to mark the thousandth anniversary of Hungary and visit the Fisherman’s Bastion to see the city splayed out below you from the viewing platform. Or, if you’re feeling active, take a hiking tour up Buda Hill, a UNESCO World heritage site. During your hike you will see the Matthias Church and the seven spires of the Fisherman’s Bastion. Alternatively, experience the labyrinths of the Hospital in the Rock, set underneath the city’s Castle district. The complex was built as a secret hospital during WWII and was later converted to a nuclear bunker.

Immerse yourself in Budapest’s imperial past by attending an exclusive private classical music concert at the majestic Gödöllõ Royal Palace, one of the favourite residences of Queen Elisabeth of Hungary. Built in the 18th century, Gödöllõ is the second largest Baroque Palace in the world, with its symmetrical white facade and immaculate interior, the concert promises to be a trip highlight.
