  guards tower on the castle wall
by gal_flower

in the center of the buda castle area there's a lot of tourist stuff like post cards, restaurants, etc.
but ... if you go more close to the wall and go around there's a lot of interesting places like hideouts, secret stairs, cannon lots, guard towers and (my favourite) the super tight balcony that goes around a huge building and we decided to go on it when there was killer freezing wind :)

Address: District I
Directions: On the top of Castle Hill (Varhegy). Funicular from Clark Adam ter (Buda bridgehead of the Chain Bridge), bus #16 from Deak F. ter, bus VAR from Moszkva ter. No cars allowed.
