"Also on top of the hill is..." Budapest Favorite Tip by Pegasus74

Budapest General: 519 reviews and 835 photos


Favorite thing: <font face=verdana>Also on top of the hill is <font color='008FFF'>Citadella</font>, a fortification with old defensive walls from which a superb panorama of the city can be best captured. It was built for military purpose but never had the need to fire a cannon. Instead it served to inspire terror among the population. Today this place is a leisure complex which hosts a hotel, restaurant and wine bar. A good history about the hill is exhibited near the entrance gateway.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
