We took the funicular up to the Castle & then walked down to exit. Funicular tickets: 1,200Ft (£3.40) one way/1,800 Ft (£5) return. We did not enter the Castle or Museums but just walked around the area & visited Matthias Church & the Fisherman's Bastion....More

This castle is inthe Buda part of the city and is one of the oldest buildings. To be able to take in the splendour on a beautiful sunny day was great. The artwork was stunning. Well worth a visit

A chance to see Hungarian art. A wonderful musical program was going on when we visited. The museum does not seem to attract many international visitors. Ceremonial guards on horseback routinely ride by and pose in front.
