The accident had claimed 20 lives with eight people still missing.
Several bodies were recovered from the wreckage of a tour boat that sank in the Danube River as it was lifted out of the river Tuesday morning in the Hungarian capital.
Candles are placed on the bridge in tribute to the tourist boat the Mermaid.
Police say the boat sank within seven seconds of the collision. The operation to lift the vessel out of the river onto a waiting barge began at around 6:00 am (0400 GMT) and took more than six hours to complete. Crews have struggled to assess how much damage the 70-year-old boat sustained in the collision, salvage experts said.
Once the captain's deck appears, they will stop and search for the body of the captain before continuing to lift the boat very slowly.
Seven passengers were rescued from the river and taken to hospital following the accident, and a further seven people were confirmed dead that night. The salvage crew instead focused on fixing wire harnesses underneath the vessel to prepare it for hoisting by a powerful crane mounted on a barge.
At one point, one member of the rescue crew fell into the fast-flowing water and had to be rescued after nearly being swept away.
Once out of the water and removed to a secure location the Mermaid will be examined by police who have already launched a criminal probe into the cause of the accident.
Hungarian and South Korean rescuers are starting efforts to raise a sunken tour boat out of the Danube River after a fatal collision.
On Monday the Sigyn was again searched by Hungarian police. After the incident, the boat had travelled on to Germany before returning to Hungary according to its schedule.
Hungarian investigators carried out another search inside the Viking Sigyn, the cruise ship that hit the tourist boat, to obtain additional evidence amid growing criticism that the investigation into the sinking has not been thorough.
Dozens of small sightseeing boats ply the river through Budapest every day.
The bodies of other victims were recovered in the following days, with one pulled from the Danube more than 100km (60 miles) downstream.
