Think this National Gallery really is worth visiting. It is right there near the city center and from the courtyard there is a good view over the city. Not quite like there on the citadel but worth seeing. Sometimes you have to wait quite long...More

We visited the Frida exhibition, the gallery and exhibition are worth visiting. Without festival tickets you are not allowed to have a drink on the terrace and need to make a detour to get out of the museum.

I can count on one hand the negative reviews I’ve submitted but, sadly, here’s another. Lots of confusion at the entrance as there was a folk festival taking place in the grounds of the palace. When I say a folk festival, I mean a market...which...More

Buda castle is worth to visit - and if you climb up there, why not to visit either permanent (Hungarian, Munkacsi) or temporary exhibition (Frida Kahlo)?!

This was the highlight of my time in Budapest. The gallery was absolutely unbelievable and had artefacts that are more than 700 years old that in my opinion put modern add to shame. Unfortunately the room exhibiting the start of the 20th century was closed...More

First, do catch the Frida Kahlo exhibition while it is on. Just the right combination of information and outstanding art works and images. Not an artist I knew well before but thoroughly enjoyed it. The main collection depends on personal taste. My own favourites are...More
