Luxury Budapest book cover

Tour I.
The Buda Castle District

When strolling around one of the most beautiful parts of Budapest, forget historical sites for a minute, and just follow your nose. You can’t go wrong! You can approach the Buda Castle from various different directions. The most spectacular way is from the Danube. You pass through an ornamented gate to the palace, which once served as a royal residence, with the statue of a turul bird of ancient Hungarian myth over the gate, holding a sword of valour in its talons.
