Tram No. 2 is the perfect way to see many of the great sights that Budapest city has to offer.
Taking Tram No. 2 from Jászai Square you soon arrive at the building of Parliament, the third largest Parliament in the world. It mixes styles of Neo-Gothic and Neo-Renaissance and it’s definitely a spectacular view where it lies on the riverbank of the Danube. A little further down the view of Matthias Church, Fishermen’s Bastion and the Royal Palace unfolds across the river. The tram rattles past the many beautiful bridges, including the old Chain Bridge, Elizabeth Bridge and Liberty Bridge. I got off and on the tram at its different stops to take walks and shoot the spectacular surroundings of the Danube riverbank. You can’t get a better or cheaper tour of Budapest’s essentials than Tram No. 2.
