    We walked this street from Elizabeth Square to Heroes Square. It is lined with beautiful buildings, many with highly decorated entryways. We enjoyed just looking at the artful window displays in many of the shops.

    We call it Budapest’s Avenue des Champs-Élysées.

    In the summertime, this place is PACKED with people - almost all Hungarian. This isn't a super-touristy thing to do. It's far from the city center, but it's absolutely worth it!
    We walked through the park and made our way up to the tower and then took the chair lift down. The walk is not tiring, but relaxing as the trail winds and curves through the park. There are several fantastic playgrounds for kids.
    Once you reach the chair lift, you can walk or take stairs to the tower and the view is absolutely worth it!
    Be sure to buy a chimney cake (kurtoskalacs) for your trip down the hillside.

    The weather was beautiful and the walk and views even more so. It is hard to know which side of the river to be on, and, at times, it is worth crossing back and forth for certain views.

    Our hotel was close by so we took advantage of this area for cafes and bars. Seemed perfectly safe to walk, we especially enjoyed the ‘ruin bars’ in this area - just Google them! Choices galore, both food and drink.

    This square is dominated by the National Archives which is housed in an architecturally significant building notable for its roof made of brown, gold and orange tiles.

    Stretching from Dísz square till Kapisztrán square this 1 km long street is probably the most famous one in Castle District. Favoured by the nobilities, just the Count Széchenyi family itself had five palaces on this street. Here reside Zichy Rafael, Zwack János, the Pallavicini family, and Eötvös József.
    During the Second World War, numerous houses were severely damaged or destroyed. Luckily the rebuilding and restoration kept the overall picture of the street, and still plenty of interesting and exciting buildings, just keep your eyes open. It would be too long to list all of them, so I'll just grab some examples.Have a look at the Gothic gateway of No 6 of this medieval street. There are sitting-booths. The No 63 is the Archbishop's palace with its original beauty. The main attraction is the Maria Magdalena church. Thanks to the recent renovation, for a fee, it's possible to climb up to the tower and enjoy the view of the Castle District.
    Anytime, when I walk in this area, I always walk along Úri street, and it still gives me the pleasant feeling of walking in history.

    This is a green space that contains the Statue of the Independence War at one end. It is in the part of Buda known as Castle Hill.

    small boulevard? Fair enough. I'm not totally sure which part I'm reviewing but looking at the pics, it seems that it is the area outside the central market. It's all here. Bicycles for hire, the market, restaurants n cafes n bars n coffee shops, burger king, fast food huts, taxis and for us, a great location to find our bearings and head to wherever from. Love it.

    This is a residential area designed in 19th century style, with archways, lots of trees, and a central square, with a beautiful church. In the summer they have free concerts at the pavilion.

    A nice, lovely square that has a manicured feel, which was recently renovated, there is plenty of seating to enjoy the tranquility, and a few statues/sculptures to admire.
