    Lovely walk. The top was being renovated but still loved the view from the gates. I had a mulled wine whilst walking up to the top. The views are amazing during the day. We'll worth the visit.

    You should visit the Citadella above Budapest city.
    The view from there is nice.
    I recommend you to visit the Citadella at the sunset time to enjoy the view and the sunset.

    The Liberty Statue on Gellert Hill is one of the few prominent Communist statues which remained in situ after the transition to democracy, in part because of its iconic location overlooking the city. The statue was first erected in 1947 to commemorate the Soviet troops who lost their lives liberating the country, however the engraving was later changed so that it commemorated, “all who sacrificed their lives for the independence, freedom, and prosperity of Hungary.” The panoramic views from underneath the statue are unparalleled and help to make the walk to the top of the hill well worth it.

    Stopped in to check it out and glad we did. A church carved out the cave, there are quite a few things to look at, with different chapels allocated in the space. I especially liked the chapel with the wood carvings. You’ll see it as you cross the Liberty bridge.

    Magnificent View from the top!
    Easy to find, and very nice to visit. It is free, except your stamina and a few steps to the top. :)
    It's quiet and really worth to visit it.

    Nice traditional baths, a must-do when in Budapest.
    Check out the calendar, as some days are men or women only and nude (just wearing an apron covering your privates).
    Cabins to change and leave your clothes available.
    Space enough in the baths but very noisy when busy,
    There is a steam bath which is very warm (too warm to really enjoy) and a sauna where you can sit on uncomfortable wooden chairs. Nothing fancy in the turkish bath zone. Only tradition, but worth the experience!

    A traditional spa belongs to the places in Budapest worth a visit. Warm water and imagination of beautiful and important personalities is a nice way of passing a time.

    On our bus tour, we rode by this monument several times. It is a huge state of Saint Gellert sitting at the bottom of Gellert Hill at the Elizabeth Bridge. St. Gellert has a commanding view of the Danube and the pest side of Budapest. It was opened in 1904. It is a 23-foot statue by Gyula Jankovits. The statue can be reached by stairs. An artificial waterfall was created under the statue.

    This statue is located in a park at the Buda end of the Elizabeth Bridge, which is named for her. From here you have views back across the Danube River of the Pest side.

    Szent Gellert Square is a nice little square in front of the Gellert Hotel facing the River Danube.
    The best option to go there is just by walking through the Liberty Bridge.
    Also if you are there do not forget to go to check out the metro station of Gellert Square underneath (M4 line), which is a nice piece of architecture!

    Enjoy the ReStart and new life after Corona and one of the biggest playgrounds in Budapest while the sunny days. Its a cool spot and option for a break if you plan a hike with your kids on the Gellert Hill!🦁 It has real nices slides which you can use to shorten the way down the hill and also some nice jumping options. Its on the backside of the hill and surrounded by trees, so you will have shadow and many benches to sit down for break too.

    It is one of the richest arboretum in Hungary. It’s located in a huge area and has about 2000 trees, bushes and other plants, and flowers, of course. We got there by bus (27) from Moricz Zs. korter, it’s easy to find, only one stop. We were very lucky because the weather was sunny and the cherry trees were in bloom. It was really beautiful. We walked aroud and sat on a bench and relax. It’s calm and you can forget your problems there.

    Built between the wars this bridge serves its purpose well transporting people to the ‘other’ side. Not surprisingly it was blown up by the retreating German army a testimony to its functionality and rebuilt after the war. In a time of peace its wonderful to reflect on the vagaries of man.

    Pretty nice statue. You are lucky if you can get a photo of it, because it's very crowded and full of people trying to rip your money off.
