Buda Castle (Budavári Palota) is undoubtedly one of the best known images of Budapest. The castle is also known as the Royal Palace, since it was formerly the residence of the kings of Hungary.

We would highlight two fundamental aspects of the Buda Castle: the first, the imposing complex that it forms with the Chain Bridge, especially at night when they are illuminated, and, the second, the views that we obtain from the top of the hill, similar to those obtained from the Fisherman's Bastion.

In addition to the castle itself, on the Buda hill you will find many attractive alleys where you can lose yourself aimlessly for a couple of hours.
