“Breathtaking”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

Breathtaking - especially on a clear day at sunset! Beautiful stroll around the grounds and wonderful architecture to look at. Could have spent hours just walking around.

“A Castle is a Castle - right”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

Buda Castle serves to remind us of times gone by and we learn how the castle functioned throughout the years gone by and served the city - the views from the upper terraces are excellent on a clear day and the detailed information on the caslte is past and present day use allows the visitor to wonder and explore the many hidden areas, some less interesting then others - visitors need to decide for themselves what they expect from a monument such as Buda Castle.

“Buda Castle”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

The castle was well worth the trip, we went into the museum, glad we did although not as much to see as we expected. We saw the changing of the guards when we arrived that was interesting as we see it so many times in London, great to see traditions are still in place elsewhere.
