  • Very nice, and the Trinity Square, and St. Michael's Basilica is restored! Who wants to stroll on a little more, you can go to Jeruzsálemhegyre, and from there it is just a few lépsnyire there are plenty of dining options.

  • Well worth the walk through the Castle District to take in the panoramic views this vantage point offers - look over the rooftops of the town and surrounding hills. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit!  more »
  • you can have a lovely walk on the hill, where there are amazing old buildings. the view is also nice, but other than that there isn't much to see - unless you'd like to visit a museum or two  more »
