  • That entire area is a must-see location. There's no point in paying for entry on the right side at the wall when you get the same view on the left for free.  more »
  • Everywhere you walk around Castle Hill there are statues, memorials, and history. This statue is just another beautiful one.  more »
  • King Stephan, after the Stephen's Cathedral in Budapest on the Pest side is named, sits up here to Ross on his base. Where the "horse droppings" are produced, towards the public pay toilets can be found, but also the ticket to visit the Matthias Church.
