Budapest is one of the most photographed cities in the world. However, Finding and thinking of the best spots to take these Instagram worthy photos may be more complicated then you may think. So here we have sources out the 5 most amazing spot to Instagram in Budapest.

1. Fisherman’s Bastion

This place is about as touristy as it can get. It is one of the most scenic sites that Budapest has to offer and you will literally feel like you're standing on top of the world. The panoramic views from the top of the Bastion look all across the beautiful city for miles and really are second to non in Budapest

If your a fan of the Lord of the rings Saga then this place could be exactly what you need as some people do say that it reminds them a lot of one of the castles. Topping that you also get the opportunity to play dress up within the grounds, Perfect for picture taking!

2. M4-es Metróvonal

Also known as the green line of Budapest which opened in March, 2014. The site is not available in the guidebooks but if you are planning to take some good photos at places where there are no tourists then it is a must visit. It is based on modern architecture and it has the latest metro M4 in line for the people of Budapest. With the design and functionality it's the perfect example of the urbanism.

3. Balna, Budapest

Balna, which means whale, is a great place for shopping, eating out and taking photos. Although this place is going through some ups and down at the moment due to some financial issues, means that the construction of this place is not yet complete. However, once it is completed it will curtainly get visited the most compared to other attraction.

It is also a prime place to understand modern architecture with its whale like shape - ideal for taking cool and unusual photos for Instagram before it gets more popular.

4. Museum of Applied Arts

From those who have visited would certainly call this place the hidden treasure of Budapest. The museum is included in the guidebook but the route to get there is not as obvious, which is why tourists often avoid the place. It really is the best example of how skilled Hungarian architecture is and is definitely one of the most beautiful buildings in the world. The current state of the building is not very good which makes it even more attractive.

5. St. Stephen’s Basilica

This Roman Cathedral was named in honour of Stephen, the first King of Hungary, It is one of the most popular and famous destinations in Budapest and the best part about this place is that most tourists don't know about it's location. When you arrive you will see its Beauty, not just from the outside but also when you step inside. If you are able to reach the the very top towers you will see just exactly how mesmerising the views of the city really are. Try to go up around 30 to 40 minutes before the sun sets to see the most remarkable view.

6. Széchenyi Thermal Bath

Built in 1913 these baths are the largest in Europe, having room for both a indoor and outdoor pool. The architecture here is phenomenal and the whole space of the baths are so well decorated. Well worth the visit!
