What should you best of taking a booze cruise Budapest?
Reaching the Margaret Island, – 2.5 km long one in the middle of the Danube, spanning between Margaret Bridge and Árpád Bridge – we will dock nearby so do not miss to get out and explore the peacefulness as one of the places in the crowded smoky central Budapest that suggests pleasure hours in nature. The island is mainly covered with parks; grasslands as widespread recreational area even taste cold house beers or wines with the common, typical “lángos” (scone) or sweet “kürtőskalács” (Chimney cake) by sellers’ stands. This dessert is a spit cake which consists of flour, icing sugar, salt, yeast, eggs, milk, and butter. Actually, it’s sweet yeast dough. „Lángos” is salted and often also seasoned with some garlic, pepper, or filed cheese.
In the medieval ages, this island was known as the „island of rabbits”. Later, there was a king called Béla IV and during his reign, Tatar invasion was in Hungary. The king made an oath if God saved him and his country, he would offer his daughter to be a nun. So Princess Margaret became a nun in the cloister of the island. She lived in a very religious and humble way; later his father tried to absolve her from the vow, but Margaret wanted to stay in the cloister as a nun. Despite the princess was really respected, she was canonized much later, in 1943. You can visit her tomb and the ruins of some monasteries (Franciscan, Dominican, and Norbertine).
Another sight is the fountain which plays nice music made by a Szekely handyman called Péter Bodor. Actually, it is well known by Palatinus water park and Hajós Alfréd sports pool even tennis stadium. In case you are desiring sporting facilities moreover in hot summers, get out from sightseeing cruise and splash into the water. Lots of Hungarian artists loved this place. The most famous example is János Arany who wrote many of his late poems here such as ’Under the oaks’. This is the part of the group of poems called Őszikék (őszike is a kind of crocus). However, the writer Mór Jókai or Gyula Krúdy, the actress Kornélia Prille or Mari Jászai, or the painter Károly Lotz spent their time with pleasure on the Margaret Island.
