Well worth a ride along the beautiful Danube in this regular tram. Great views along the way and ask for price of standard ticket. No commentary as it's just public transport.

Tramline No. 2 is one of the most famous tramlines running on the bank of the Danube, between Közvágóhíd (new National Theatre) and Jászai Mari tér (Near Margaret Island). It is a must just for the scenery along the river. A truly wonderful Experience.

Tram looks like something right out of a cold war era film or perhaps an older James Bond movie. It stopped directly in front of my hotel (Intercontinental) about every 5. Tram runs from Parliament down to the Liberty Bridge/Central Market Hall along the Danube...More

I heard of this tram even before I visit the city. It's ancient and goes along the Danube which makes it perfect to ride.

This is a fabulous way to travel down the the Danube river frontage, at very little cost. Either get a book of 10 tickets (valid on trams/trolley buses/Underground) at 300 HUF, or buy a couple of single tickets at the machine in the central reservation...More

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
