  • Castle Hill is a gateway to an incredible variety of attractions. You can view it by day but it is even better and more spectacular by night, floodlit, and offering astounding views of the city  more »
  • It is worth a full day or stroll around the Castle and bring the nooks-zugos streets. St George's square panorama unfolds, as the fishermen's bastion. Definitely recommend if you visit Budapest!
