Sziget Eye gives riders spectacular view of Budapest

BUDAPEST, Hungary (NBC/EBU) — A huge Ferris wheel in Budapest, Hungary, is up and running for the summer tourist season.

It’s called the Sziget Eye and is the best way to get spectacular view of Budapest.

The 213-foot Ferris wheel has 41 air-conditioned cabins that give passengers a 10-minute ride to see the city.

Sziget is also the name of the international music festival Budapest hosts every August.

The Sziget Eye is one of two large Ferris wheels in the city. The other one is not as tall.

The Ferris wheels will operate until October. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
