It is very easy for someone to forget and ignore the trinity tower, as it always lies in the shadows of St. Matthias Church. Just by the side of it, it does not boast of a grand view, rather it is used more as a...More
Found this on our way to St. Matthias church and the Bastion. The area is a huge tourist attraction (I should talk) and so it's very crowded. Statue is fairly tall and well done. Didn't really dig into what it represents
The central square on Castle Hill is Trinity Square.
The column was built to supposedly protect the people from another plague out-break.
It is surrounded by the Matthias Church, Fisherman’s Bastion, the Old Town Hall of Buda etc.
This Square has a most beautiful statue. It is very religious and would have been a comfort to those who had been spared death from the plague. The Square also contains lots of other iconic features - the Old Town Hall, the Fisherman’s Bastion and...More

That is Kossuth Square for Pest; the same is Trinity Square for Buda. These two squares are the hearts of these two parts of Budapest.

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 glimpse into the golden years of the Austro-Hungarian empire and the lives led by the aristocracy at the time. Matthias Church, beside the palace, hosted many
events attended by the royal family and was the chosen place for the coronation of Franz Josef, one of the Hungarian Habsburg kings. Having admired the palace and the church, a visit to Buda will be unforgettable by the stunning and memorable panorama over Pest offered by the seven towered Fishermen’s Bastion.
