Sincerly, if only I could decide it, tis cupola wouldn`t stay there for long, that`s for sure. I can`t wait to see the reconstruction of the original fabulous one. This one isn`t really bad but really there is no comparison between the two. However I must admit that this is the best viewpoint in the whole Castle district. The Fishermen`s bastion, the Bishops garden and the court of the Royal palace gives you great photo shooting opportunities, but only the cupola gives you a 360 degrees full view, so if you want to make really good photos, this is the right choice.
The only problem is that you can go there only if you
1. Pay the entrance fee to the National Gallery (800 HUF-3,20 EUR)+
2. You pay 300 HUF (1,20 EUR) to visit the cupola.
The sight from above speaks for itself-just see the photos-, so paying this not really high fee is highly adviceable.
