At World Heritage Site Buda Castle, you'll encounter medieval architecture, lush gardens, and centuries of royal Hungarian and Austro-Hungarian history. Though Nazis stole the palace's luxurious room exhibits in the 1940s, the building is still home to the Hungarian National Gallery, which holds significant collections of Hungarian art. It is also the site of the Budapest History Museum and National Szechenyi Library. This 13th-century structure has been renovated and modernized after it was nearly destroyed in World War II. Explore the surrounding neighborhood, known as the Castle District, which is celebrated for its historic houses, churches, and public buildings.

  • Beautiful place, takes your breath away! If you want to take pictures you have to wait a bit in certain spots, but the wait is worth it!

  • The start of our vacation was In Budapest cruising down the Danube river. After visiting both sides and sightseeing at some amazing places this was by far one of the most beautiful places I’ve seen...

  • I haven’t been inside so far, but the outside is outstanding. It’s been having renovations for a while, so there is always some part that you can’t get to see due this, but the rest is really nice. Good views of the city and the parliament
  • Beautiful architecture, amazing view over the city! Highly recommend going here at night so you can see the city and the bridges with all the lights. Going up I went by foot and it wasn't hard at all, really easy to walk and relax while going up.
