The normally bustling city of Budapest, Hungary appears to be almost void of human activity in this video by The Hobby Traveler, shot while the Hungarian capital was in the midst of the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic in the Spring of 2020.  The video uses a combination of drone and ground camera footage to show how social distancing measures imposed to slow the spread of the deadly virus created eerie scenes of car-less Danube River bridges, empty public squares, and public transportation facilities with no passengers.

Contributor Minglam created this magnificent drone video of the Hungarian Parliament Building, one of the most well known landmarks in the capital city of Budapest.  Situated on the eastern side of the great Danube River, the Gothic Revival building was built in connection with the unifaction of Buda and Pest in the late 19th century.  This architectural marvel, which is still the largest building in Hungary, required the labor of about 100,000 by the time it was completed and opened in 1904.

Bridges are the lifeblood of Budapest, a city created via the merger of Buda and Pest on either side of the Danube River.  In this drone video by contributor Smmaxim, you'll get a bird's eye view of almost all of these bridges, shot from a vantage point flying above Buda Castle.  The oldest and best known is the  Széchenyi Chain Bridge, which was built in 1849, 25 years before the union.  With a total length of 375 meters (over 1.2k ft.), it was considered one of the world's engineering marvels.

Bridges are the lifeblood of Budapest, a city formed in 1873 by the union of the cities of Buda and Pest on either side of the Danube River in western Hungary.  The most famous of these bridges is the first: the Széchenyi Chain Bridge.  Seen in this drone video by tom g bp, the bridge links  Adam Clark Square on the Buda (western) side of the Danube with Szécheny Square on the Pest (eastern) side.  Spanning 374 meters (1.23k ft.), it was considered a great feat of 19th century engineering when it was completed in 1849.

Budapest's two most famous churches are located on opposite sides of the Danube River: St. Stephens Basilica on the Pest (eastern) side and the Matthias Church on the western (Buda) side.  In this excellent piece by tom g bp, you'll get a great aerial view of the Matthias Church, formally known as the Church of the Assumption of the Buda Castle.  The Gothic style landmark dates to the 14th century, built on the site of an earlier Romanesque style church.  It's located in Holy Trinity Square, in the heart of the city's Castle District. 

Heroes' Square


Heroes' Square, Budapest, Hungary


Contributor created a beautiful aerial view of Heroes' Square, one of the main landmarks of Budapest, Hungary.  The square was constructed around the turn of the 20th century, shortly after Buda and Pest had united to form the present-day city of Budapest.  The timing also coincided with the 1,000 year anniversary of the Hungarian conquest of the Carpathian Basin.  Unlike similarly named squares in other European capitals, Heroe's Square does not contain any interred remains.  

Buda Castle at Night

Contributor and drone pilot created this beautiful aerial video of Buda Castle, one of the landmarks of the Hungarian capital Budapest and widely considered to be one of the finest Baroque palaces in the world.  The original structure was built in the 13th century on the Buda (western) side of the Danube River.  It was essentially rebuilt in the mid-18th century.  The castle was the home of the Kings of Hungary through the dissolution of the Austro-Hungarian Empire at the end of World War I.
