“Nice view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2014

Really nice view over the Pest-side. It's only a pity that the former communism leaders accepted an ugly Hilton-hotel placed in the middle of the Bastion.It only shows that even in the communism age: Money talks.

“among the best views from here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2014

on the "Buda" - Castle side of Budapest, overlooking the Danube and the "Pest" side incl. the famous Parliament building. Certainly one of the "must go and see" places of the city. Enjoy the view.

“Back in time !!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2014

Great view from this old and charming place. You can see a part of Pest, the Danube river and the magnificent Parliament.
Around there are the Matyas church, the statues Holy Trinity and King Stefan riding.
Not far away it is the Buda Castle.
This old part of city, called Buda is wonderfull

“Great place for photos of the parliament”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2014

Although this is a bit crowded it is worth coming for the views. We took the funicular railway up, but walked down after exploring the old town.

“Great view when weather is fine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2014

You can enjoy the Danube river views mostly when the weather is fine. Climb few stairs to get a better view, or make a small walk around visit the National Gallery with great exhibits as well as the gift shops around.
