View on Danubio river.
From low side to high side you can see the best famous Chain Bridge, The Palace Hotel and Saint Stephane Basilique.

The Chain Bridge - today still the most recognizable symbol of the city – was the first permanent bridge over the River Danube and the logical conclusion of that was the legislative unification in 1873 of Buda, Pest and Óbuda into one city – Budapest. A Council of Public Works was formed, whose direction determined both the future shape and the enduring beauty of the city. The great boulevards were laid down – most notably Andrássy út and the körútak or ring roads – and the transformation of Budapest into a modern world class city truly began.

The Basilica of Saint Istvan is the greatest church in Budapest. The cupola, high 96 meters, is looked at from any point of the city.
