"Castle grounds & gardens" Buda Castle - Royal Palace Tip by mvtouring

Buda Castle - Royal Palace, Budapest: 164 reviews and 374 photos


Yes I know, there are a lot of stairs to climb, but that is what enables you to get excellent views from the terrases over the gardens.

The original Castle was built in the 13th Century. In the 14th Century it was enlarged and later in the time of King Matthias it was transformed into a Palace.

The Turks controlled Buda for 150 years , after their departure the castle area was rebuilt into a Baroque Palace.

The three museums that are today housed here, are, Hungarian National Gallery, Budapest History Museum and the Museum of Contemporary Art.
