There are many places of great historical and cultural interest, restaurants, clubs and discos. But what immediately takes the attention is, undoubtedly, the castle of the city.
The Buda Castle, historic seat of the kings of Hungary, was even called Castillo Palacio Real. It was built on the south side of the hill near the old quarter of the Castle, (VĂĄrnegyed), famous for its baroque and medieval houses and public buildings of the nineteenth century. It is linked to Adam Clark Square and the Chain Bridge (SzĂŠchenyi LĂĄnchĂd) by funicular.
The Hungarian castle is located near the Danube River. The lighting makes the castle especially beautiful at night and not to be missed. It was constructed on the hills of Buda, after the Mongolian invasion in 1241, while Buda was appointed the capital of Hungary. Since then the castle has been improved and expanded in different historical periods, especially after the attacks during independence wars and battles. There are many universities, schools, libraries and museums, many of them run by nuns.
In fact, nowadays the castle houses the Budapest History Museum, which is divided into four floors. This museum shows the history of Budapest since the end of communism. You can also see the bottom of the Royal Chapel, which was completely restored, and in the basement you can see some examples of the prisons of the era. The beauty of the gardens is wonderful: they are from the middle ages. You can also enjoy a panoramic view of the castle. Even the towers are accessible, and you can see the Parliament building, the Danube, the streets surrounding the complex and, in the sunny days, the Statue of Liberty.
This wonderful place, a symbol of excellence in the Hungarian capital, was named a World Heritage Site in 1987. It is a must on your travels to Budapest! Rent apartments in Budapest and enjoy a great and comfortable stay.
