  • Historically very interesting and very easily accessible by bus. Great views. Can do it but that one does not have.

  • Great point to make panoramic pictures of the city. A happy return in the evening, when the bridges, the Parliament, the Castle and other public buildings are lit! Well worth the trip! Some of the best pictures I took them from here! Interesting statue, Soviet, and Bill's devoted after 1989 to those who fought for freedom. The Citadel itself was not impressed. To climb to the Citadel you can take bus 27 in Moricz Zs. Busulo and get off at fohn Juhasz utca. From there a short climb takes you up to the Citadel (thank you who in the forum described the way, helping me and two Italian guys I met on the street).
