We were there for a couple hours, it didn't seem like there was much to see compared to other palaces like those in Vienna, but the views of Pest and the river were very nice, and didn't cost a dime to walk around.

The Castle is magnificent and above all free. There is a charge to visit the Art Gallery unless you are over 70 in which case it is free. This is a fantastic facility with some wonderful painting on view.

District I / Buda
The historical center to a city with a multifarious
and intricate past, Buda has some of the most
outstanding buildings in Europe and an enviable
natural landscape with stunning views onto the Danube.
Centered around the Royal Palace, it provides a
glimpse into the golden years of the Austro-Hungarian
empire and the lives led by the aristocracy at the
time. Matthias Church, beside the palace, hosted many

There is an artist located in the Castle District in the mail street towards the Hilton. He is near the small Herend shop. He paints enamel pictures on glass. Love his work but didn't get his name. Interested in a piece of his work. Anyone know his name or how to contact?

About 15 minutes. But there are blue electric buses which go up and down the hill every few minutes (no. 17, I think). They are very cheap & included if you but the 1 day or 3 day tram/bus/train/metro/trolleybus ticket... More
