We are particularly interested in the history of WWI and there was a new exhibition which highlighted Hungary's participation which we found particularly interesting. There is a lot to see so allow a couple of hours.

They had great many weapons and cannons so it was everything I love. Also you could feel what its like to carry around old school machine gun (HEAVY)! If you're a history nut the place is perfect.

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.
