The Royal Palace complex now houses various museums and galleries and I didn't have time to explore all the treasures inside but a walk around the outside was impressive enough.

There are large squares, grand buildings, beautiful statues, formal gardens and panoramic views over Budapest. It's more than obvious why the area was declared a World Heritage Site.

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.
