  • On top of the hill see Budapest's very owm Statue of Liberty this one commemorates Hungary’s liberation from the Nazi rule by the Red Aemy 
  • The day had visited the Church in the cave and to pass the time we started walking in a park that's right next to it and after a while walking we reached this square that we weren't even thinking about visiting, but it was a nice surprise

  • By car you reach the Citadel at the top of the Hill Gellert after passing the beautiful Elizabeth Bridge walk continue for a few minutes towards the Fort: beautiful wall murals of the external wall of the Fort posted on nineteenth-century Budapest. From there you can enjoy the most beautiful view of Budapest. If the day is clear is a show. Continue 5 minutes and the freedom monument. Can not help but take pictures. You can continue on and off for a while on the trail on the other side of the Hill until you reach a small clearing where you can admire the Danube that flows under the liberty bridge. Breathtaking. From here you also have a good view of the Gellert baths. The walk can take Abt. 1 now and absolutely deserves to be made.
