Pest Side of Budapest, Hungary

The East Bank of Budapest was called Pest prior to 1873. This is where the majority of the city’s population and landmarks are located. This elevated view from Castle Hill shows a few highlights you must explore. The Chain Bridge spanning the Danube leads to István Széchenyi Square. Here is where you will find the Gresham Palace on the left (now a Four Seasons Hotel) and the Ministry of Interior Building (on the right). The dome is St. Stephen’s Basilica. Inside are the relics of Saint Stephen, the first King of Hungary.
