Part of the Castle District and a medieval royal residence, Buda Castle also served as an important cultural and scientific hub. Today it houses the Hungarian National Gallery, the Budapest History Museum and the National Széchényi Library.
The symbol of Visegrád, located just over 40 kilometres north of Budapest and one of the most prominent and most photographed sights of the Danube Bend, is the Citadel dominating the top of a steep hill above the town.
Located in one of Budapest’s largest public parks, City Park, Vajdahunyad Castle is today home to the Museum of Hungarian Agriculture. The castle was built on an island and can be accessed via one of four bridges.
Are you interested in exploring not only Budapest but the beauties of rural Hungary as well? Purchase a ticket for the nostalgia train, get in your car or use the local public transportation to travel to Gödöllő. Why? Because this rural town is home to the famous Grassalkovich Baroque Palace.
