Budapest, Hungary

Budapest is a great city for walking because there is so much to see. It is the third capital city going down the Danube and the most fun to explore. Major sights are well known: Hungarian Parliament Building, Chain bridge, Buda Castle. But a walk along Andrássy Avenue is also recommended, it is the Hungarian Champs-Élysées. This Avenue is an elegant 2.5 km (2 miles) long tree-lined street that covers the distance from Erzsébet tér (square) to the Heroes Square. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Thousands of photos taken on two trips down the Danube (first trip starting at Calais, France and the second trip from Vlissingen, Netherlands, both all the way to the Black Sea) have been used to create the EuroCanals PhotoNav Guides for the Danube. They include the photos shown on this website.

In full-page format they display the details of landmarks along the route, in a km-by-km sequence. The photos are identified by kilometer post; they include ports, bridges, locks as well as sites worth noting. Examples are described on this page:
