"The view from the Citadel" Citadella - Citadel Tip by Mique

Citadella - Citadel, Budapest: 29 reviews and 63 photos

  Budapest seen from the Citadel
by Mique

At first we wanted to forgo the allmost obligatory stop to the Citadel and do something else on the sunday i was to fly back from Budapest to Amsterdam. But after we had had a lazy breakfast in the september sun on the balcony of our B&B, we just didn't have enough time anymore. So we went with the car up to the Citadel. And although the place is very very touristy with all the shops and that and all the tour-buses stopping there as well.. i still enjoyed the view immensely. And of course trying to puzzle out which building was what... which kept us amused for a while too.

I was just glad we didn't have to climb up the hill. It was still around 25 degrees (in september) and it is quite a climb..

Unfortunately the Citadel itself is not much.
