Tram Number 2 is an attraction in and of itself. The trams are warm, safe and convenient plus tram number 2 goes along a very scenic route. Parliament, the Danube, Pesti Vigada and the many other sights are visible along this route.

Love to ride trams. Underground may be faster, but what a wonderful way to see the sights. The Budapest Card allows unlimited travel on all transportation in Budapest so you can ride this tram up and down the river to your hearts content. The number 2 tram runs all along the Pest side of the Danube. From below the Marriott... More

This is an interesting way for checking out the tourist places along the pest side of the danube. And it's also a cheap option 😉

Passing all sights at the river bank, that's wjat makes the line special. However, it's just a tram taking you from A to B, just a city public transport.

Having taken this tram from the Elizabeth Bridge to Parliament I have to say I have never said look at that so much in such a short journey, this tram is iconic, give it a go, it the only tram that runs along the promenade, so you cannot go wrong.

This tram runs up and down the length of the part of the Danube where Buda Castle and the house of parliament sits, near lots of shopping and tourist attractions. I had just come from the airport using a twenty-four hour ticket, so I literally went down and rode it back and forth a couple of times until I'd seen... More

We took the #2 train to see the city but maybe we expected too much. Perhaps better in the evening to see lights of the bridges. If need to get across the river form one end to the other, great option.

I love the way you can use this beautiful old tram and as a matter of fact the whole public tranfer network to visit Budapest not as a tourist but as a local resident.Use an application like smart city, pick an address and smart the adventure!!!

As four adults staying in Budapest for 2 days without a car, we went on a whirlwind of sightseeing. We found that buying a 24 hour group pass (which is good for up to 5 people) was the best value for us. It allows your whole family to ride metro, trams and all buses in the greater Budapest area for... More

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
