The palace is just a normal looking palace, nothing exceptional in contrast with the surroundings. What was really great is that we had a chance to watch the changing of the guard and this really made the visit here worthwhile.

We went to view Sandor Palace by accident really, we were walking from the Castle to the Bastion and in-between we see Sandor Palace. It’s a true spectacle and we got there just in time for the military procession!
Get the funicular railway to the top for midday to see the guard.

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.
