Lovely area with great gift/souvenir shops. Busy tourist spot....but do not feel overcrowded. Maybe the time of year was a factor.

Castle Hill gives the visitor to Budapest access to the historic sites of old town Buda and fantastic views of Pest, especially at night.

Really you don't need to pay a funicular or a minibus. Walking from the left side you will find a free lift to the top. We enjoy the views !!! and also going around. Must-to-see attraction.

The historical center to a city with a multifarious
and intricate past, Buda has some of the most
outstanding buildings in Europe and an enviable
natural landscape with stunning views onto the Danube.
Centered around the Royal Palace, it provides a

time. Matthias Church, beside the palace, hosted many
