Europe has a long and turbulent history，the castles are the relics of witnessed centuries of dramatic historical events. Magnificent and charming, if you’re after epitome of Romantic design then not much can beat Buda Castle Hill 🏰🏰🏰. Easy imagine as a merriment building of ornate embellishment, it from white limestone façade turrets and secret terraces to steeped in myth and legend of monument, Buda Castle Hill could be the setting of a story book📖📕📖. Nestled at the hilly west bank of the Buda side of Budapest, not only important historic sites, Buda Castle Hill also hides the entrance to a large interconnected cellar system that consists of natural caves created by thermal waters♨♨♨ and man-made passageways.
Easily accessible by either on foot or via public transport from Budapest City, Buda Castle Hill is district packed with historic sites and famous for its splendid vistas which be an ideal day-trip of your Budapest schedule. You also can enter Buda Castle from St. George Square to the north, where the Sikló funicular connects Castle Hill with the Chain Bridge and Pest. Simultaneously, Buda Castle Hill as a superb save budget as many of the group of attractions are free😍😍😍 and open all year round
Buda Castle Hill to have been first royal castle dates as far back as the Stone Age🤩🤩🤩, was the backdrop to a sequence of events that ultimately changed the course of Hungary’s history. Resulting in an interesting mix of important medieval ruins and architectural highlights from the last few centuries, the fortress exemplifies new-Renaissance architecture and truly us imagine as the truly scenery in the fairy tale castle. With elegant appearance, the castle is almost otherworldly and stands in complete contrast to the green grove🌲🌳🌲 that surround it, overlooking the breathtaking panorama🏙🏙🏙 of Pest.
The castle had a tumultuous history that reflects the ups and downs of Hungary’s fortunes. The rich history of the site and the hundreds of years of renovations has resulted in the interesting design which is famous for medieval, Baroque and Neoclassical houses🏠🏠🏠, churches, public buildings and monuments🏚🏚🏚. We walking the uphill road and past the most vestige of the Buda Castle, round bastion is guarded as a beautiful tower gate and its more than three hundred meter (1000 ft) long facade facing the Danube is particularly impressive.
The main structure of the Buda Castle, known as the Royal Palace is the historical castle and palace complex of the Hungarian kings in Budapest. The castle was badly damaged in WWII, but much of the exterior has since been fully restored,the current incarnation is a massive example of the 18th century’s obsession with Neo-Baroque-style structure😍😍😍. The palace is more than 160 rooms, interior was stripped and destroyed during the war, the palace in particular is completely devoid of ornamentation and none the magnificent royal apartments have been reconstructed. Currently the Royal Palace is home to the Budapest History Museum🏛🏛🏛 and the Hungarian National Gallery. The gallery hosts a large collection of Hungarian paintings, drawings and sculptures. Lucky enough😄😄😄, you can also same as us can look of the Changing of Guards behave in certain time outside of the Royal Palace.
Go along toward Fisherman’s Bastion, one of the most unique and Magnificent viewing🥰🥰🥰 terraces at the exact spot where the local fishermen’s guild built their defence installations in the Middle Ages. We like ☺☺☺Fisherman’s Bastion architecture as look of fairy tale tower which complex with neo-Romanesque architecture features conical turrets on the base of a stretch of the Buda Castle walls and design by architect Frigyes Schulek. Its seven high-pitched stone towers symbolize the seven chieftains of the Hungarians who founded Hungary in 895. From here, you’ll find some of the best views over the beautiful Danube and the architecture of Pest on the other side🌉🏙🌇.
Trinity square is endless cobbled streets and alleyways on foot, we wander in the cobblestone streets, it’s main streets still follow their medieval paths, some houses date back to the 14th and 15th centuries, giving us an idea of what the Castle District may have looked like back then. Practically every house has a plaque indicating the century in which it was built, and providing details of its history. This area feels less like a castle and more like a small town with number of the buildings are still private homes. In the centre of the square is a prominent sight in Budapest, Matthias Church⛪⛪⛪ also sit on the Buda Castle Hill. The architecture of the Church is fascinating, Its reflecting a distinctly Baroque style, unique character and the sumptuous is adorned with European artworks, sculptured and exquisite stained glass windows. This Roman Catholic Church has hosted many coronations since it was built in the 13th century, making it one of Hungary’s most important churches😮😮😮. One of its most interesting features, apart from beautiful Matthias Church is a large Baroque plague column with statues of little angels and larger statues of saints, topped off by a sculpture representing the Holy Trinity.
It was especially lovely at night🌃🌃🌃, when the crowds were gone and landmarks were lit up. The castle courtyards remain open 24 hours a day, it’s a great area to explore after nightfall as most attractions along the Danube are floodlit at night. But most of the castle attractions close at 6 or 8 pm (depands of season) , some of the restaurants🍕🥩🍰 and bars🍷🍸🍻 stay open until around 11 pm or midnight, and then the castle goes calm and quiet. Similarity, It also is a impressive panoramic view over the wonderful city and the beautiful architecture. View of the connected to the Chain Bridge, the palace complex is breathtaking at night when the overpass and the Castle are lit up. This fascinating nightscape is the perfect ending to our today’s itinerary.
