  The Palace on Buda hill
by Mique

Since i'm a real palace and castle-addict i always get very excited seeing one. And if it is a huge palace like this one, i'm even more into my element. And this palace has much to go for it. It is big. It has still some older parts and it has a very turbulent histoy with a first palace build in the 14th and 15th century. And the current palace completely being restored until the mid 80's after the palace burned down during second WWII.

There are several museums in the palace but there is unfortunately not a tour for the palace itself.

Address: Castle District (Varhegy), Buda
Directions: Can be reached by the Castle bus (Varbuz) from Moszkva ter or by the Gellert Funicular from Clark ?dam ter near the Chain Bridge.
