    This is a great area, and so pretty. It's a great place to just walk around and see the view and sights. It was a nice stop on a tour!

    Such a nice remembrance of such a horrible thing. We almost missed it, as there aren't a lot of signs marking it, but it's definitely something to see.

    Over the past few years the bridge has been renovated, and as one of the many bridges on the Danube, that connects Buda and Pest, it is both impressive in both the day and evening times.
    Visited on Easter Monday, when parts do the city have traffic restrictions allowed easier photos without the usual traffic flowing .

    The square is a Very nice tribute to Budapest's past. We went as part of a tour and it was a good stop, with lots of historical stories.

    A lovely green oasis with areas to sit, bars and food stalls, play parks for younger children. Bkes scooters and electric buggies and scooters all available to hire We hired trolley bikes and had a great time. Unfortunately, the musical fountain was out of action 😪 Definately worth the visit, especially if travelling with children.

    During most of my trips to Budapest, a city I have visited over 50 times, I make it a point to visit Castle Hill. I usually stay at the Budapest Hilton, shop at the local stores, savor the delicacies at Fisherman's Bastion and other restaurants on Castle Hill, and enjoy strolling around the streets to appreciate the ever-improving scenery, as buildings are renovated.

    A nice but very steep walk to the top of gallert hill rewarded us with a fabulous view of the city. Worth the walk for the view

    The building housing the market was probably more interesting than the goods inside. There is much repetition amongst the stalls. However, if you’re looking to buy souvenirs or purchase spices, especially paprika, you’ll have many options to choose from.

    This is such a cool concept and ultimately a castle. It's parts of castles that were in ruin, relocated, put together. It's very impressive.

    A beautiful bridge, as they all are in Budapest. Budapest just has prettier bridges than anywhere I've been. All are different but equally attractive.

    On Vaci Street, there are plenty of mid-range to high-end stores, many selling Hungarian souvenirs. In addition, there are various restaurants that offer both fine and simple everyday Hungarian cuisine, numerous cafes (I personally prefer Frei's Cafe), and more.

    Very steep walk but there are benches along the way. Sometimes people sit for a long time at them so if it was more crowded I can imagine having a hard time getting a seat. Views are amazing and worth the walk. As others have said the top
    Is fenced in but it was still worth doing

    My mum's favorite part of our whole trip was watching this fountain. The movement of the water is so peaceful and hypnotic we could've easily watched it all day. If you sit close enough it also provides a refreshing spray to boot!

    If you have time, go to the park, if you don't have time, go anyway!😁😁😁 The park is just very nice. It is diverse and wide-format. From a replica of a medieval castle to modern sports grounds. Monuments and entertainment necessary for a comfortable life, sports in one place. I recommend it for a visit.
