Budapest’s best viewpoints for Instagram

Budapest is insanely photogenic city where you can take thousands of beautiful pictures. Fairy-tale architecture, romantic castles, tremendous churches, wide boulevards, picturesque parks and islands will not let you stay indifferent. But what about picturing all this beauty with your camera and sharing it on your social media? Where to find Budapest’s best viewpoints? Sometimes it might be tricky to find the best locations, but no worries in this blog post we will reveal the most Insta-worthy spots you should definitely photograph.

Fisherman’s Bastion

Fisherman’s Bastion is a must visit attraction when coming to Hungarian capital. It is one of the most scenic sights of Budapest attracting visitors with its fairy-tale like turrets and incredibly beautiful viewpoints. Once you are there you will feel like getting back through ages and centuries. However, not only the beauty of the building itself attracts so many cameras and flashes. Fisherman’s Bastion gets you an opportunity to take lots of panoramic pictures of the city, especially of the Parliament in its full glory located on the other side of Danube.

Speaking about Parliament, it is one of the top attractions in Budapest and for sure the most photographed one. Despite that the building is quite new; it still amazes visitors with its stunning exteriors and interiors. Parliament is a massive construction so it might be hard to fit it in your camera, so we suggest taking the photos from the other side of Danube river. However, the best angles of Parliament you will get when standing on the boat. Thus, consider taking Danube river cruise for the best Instagram shots.

Széchenyi Thermal Baths

Skipping a visit to thermal baths in Budapest would be a great mistake. Széchenyi Thermal baths is the most famous complex in Budapest. It was built in 1913 and it is the largest one in Europe. Apart from taking nice shots for your Instagram you will also enjoy hot springs, outdoor pools, saunas and spa treatments offered by Széchenyi. Moreover this baths complex is perfectly located as it is surrounded by other great sights of Budapest such as Heroes Square and Vajdahunyad castle that are quite Instagramable.

Citadella Viewpoint

Climbing up one of Budapest’s best viewpoints – Citadella a top of the Gellert hill- is a must. The place offers scenic sights where you can admire the beauty of the city from bird’s eye view. There you can find two spots with breathtaking panoramas every photographer would kill for.  It is also a great place to hang out in spring and summer. You might even consider taking some snacks or drinks to have a lunch after a long walk up the hill.

Vajdahunyad castle

It is undoubtedly the most romantic castle in Budapest located right behind Heroes Square in the City Park. The castle is a mixture of various styles as it was built as a representation of 1000 years of Hungarian architecture for millennium celebrations. Vajdahunyad castle is absolutely worth visiting as it also hosts music festivals, fairs and events. In winter time you will find a large open air skating rink right next to the castle, while in summer it is a lake perfect for boating.
