Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: see the interesting displays at House of Terror Museum, appreciate the history behind Heroes' Square, then contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Stephen's Basilica (Szent Istvan Bazilika), then pause for some photo ops at Shoes on the Danube Bank, and finally take in the views from Szechenyi Lanchid.
