Tram 2

Hopping on tram 2 is considered one of the most beautiful and cheapest ways of sight-seeing in Budapest, as it goes by the riverside of Danube, driving you through the iconic buildings from Jászai Mari Square to the National Theatre. And all of this costs a BKV-ticket’s price – or two if you want to do a retour journey. It is advised to look to your left and right, too, when going in either direction as the tram goes by the Parliament, the Gresham Palace, Chain Bridge and even under Elizabeth Bridge. On the other side of the Danube the Buda Hills can be seen as well as the Castle District and Gellért Bath. And of course you can’t be left out of the competing of Corvinus and BME, as they are demanding your attention on the opposite sides of the river. Tram 2 is not the only public transportation that gives an alternative way of exploring the city – MOL Bubi and BKK boat services are opening new possibilities, too.
