The streets of the Castle area are simply beautiful. In an average year 7-8 million people visit the Castle area, and the zone of Fisherman`s Bastion is mostly very crawded, while these streets are allways so quiet and peaceful. Especially the Úri street (my favourite), and the Tóth Árpád promenade from wich you can have a great view to the Buda hills. If you visit Budapest, I suggest you to take a walk in these streets and feel their unique atmosphere.
The only thing I would change is the number of cars. You have to pay quite much, to enter with car in this area, but as you can see, there are maybe too many cars just the same. It would be much nicer if the Castle disctrict were an only pedestrian area.

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.
