Hungarian Landmark among the Most Beautiful Panoramas in the World

Hungary Today 2023.07.20.

The world is full of iconic vistas and landscapes, from rolling hills to dense concrete jungles. Buildworld has sifted through Tripadvisor user reviews and mapped the landmarks and structures with the most stunning views in every country – turizmus.com reports.

The rankings were based on the number of times the phrase “beautiful views” appeared in the reviews, TimeOut wrote, based on Buildworld’s survey.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the Eiffel Tower in Paris came top for its 360-degree bird’s-eye view. In second place was the Empire State Building in New York, and in third place was the Sacré Cœur Basilica in Paris.

The Fisherman’s Bastion (Halászbástya) in Budapest is among those making the top 10, taking fifth place in the world’s most beautiful panoramas with its spectacular views.
