HUNGARY, BUDAPEST, CASTLE DISTRICT TOUR

This post may contain affiliate links

Straight after arriving at our hotel. Our room was not ready and as we had a tour booked, we left to experience the Castle District Tour.

We took a taxi as to walk it would have been over an hour and we only had 30 mins to get there.  We arrived at the Matthias Church. This was beautiful.

The entrance to the National Gallery is dominated by an equestrian statue of the Polish general Jan Sobieski, who fought successfully against the Ottomans.

This was where I first saw the Hungarian Parliament Building. This was somewhere I was so looking forward to visit. Its is such a beautiful building.

This area is a UNESCO world heritage site and you can see why. Our tour guide told us, so much history about the area. But did not tell us much about the tunnels underneath. The Labyrinth of Buda Castle is situated in the complex of caves and cellars underneath Buda Castle District dating back to both the Ottomans and prehistoric times. This would be something I would do if I return to Budapest.

After Castle Hill, we were meant to take a short ride on the funicular railway, a cable car system built in 1870, to reach Adam Clark Square.

However after we got our tickets – it broke down, so we never got to experience it. It would have fun, but we ending up walking down to the Chain Bridge.
