Me and my boyfriend spent 3 hours walking (we are fast, fit, young and tend to explore at a fast pace so you can spend much more) through the castle district and exploring the many parts of the area. There are many little pathways to...More
We took the furnicular railway up to walk around and see the views. It's a shame there's nothing really to see inside the buildings but it was nice to walk around the grounds. The view is very similar to what we saw the day before,...More
Another great historical monument of Budapest. The grand baroque style is breathtaking as are the views of the Pest side. Also from the Pest side in the evening you can admire from a far the grand Buda Castle dominating over the Danube.
This gorgeous parliament building is not to be missed: taking the tour gives great background on the importance of its 96 archways, its 96 steps...no spoiling the surprise here! Quick tip: take the little elevator if you have walking/climbing issues, otherwise you will trek to...More

Follow one of the zig-zag paths up the hill from the riverside, or take the beautiful old funicular railway, or one of the lifts to the top of castle hill. Here is the former royal palace with its great museums and spectacular views of Pest...More
The historical center to a city with a multifarious and intricate past, Buda has some of the most outstanding buildings in Europe and an enviable natural landscape with stunning views onto the Danube. Centered around the Royal Palace, it provides a glimpse into the golden years of the Austro-Hungarian empire and the lives led by the aristocracy at the time. Matthias Church, beside the palace, hosted many
events attended by the royal family and was the chosen place for the coronation of Franz Josef, one of the Hungarian Habsburg kings. Having admired the palace and the church, a visit to Buda will be unforgettable by the stunning and memorable panorama over Pest offered by the seven towered Fishermen’s Bastion.
