Going to Buda Castle and not appreciating this piece of architecture is inadmissible. It's one of the "must see" spots while on the castle. Make sure you have a guide or book with the history of the place, so you don't miss the little details.

Matthias Church is where the royals were crowned making it more that another church in Europe. The interior is gorgeous but it was the tiled roof that I liked the most. You can see similar tiling at the Central Market downtown.

I have no words for how beautiful Matthias Church is! From the outside you are blown away with the beauty of this building. No photos do it justice. You pay 1500 HUF to go inside and it’s well worth it. Everything from the stained glass...More

It is next to the fishermen bastion, a a unmissable and unforgettable sight..so far had not got the chance to get inside but it's by far the best photographed church in Budapest. The blend of colours and settings is unique. A must while in Budapest

This church overlooks the Danube and Pest from the Buda side. The restored church is magnificent from the outside (but we did not have time to see the inside). Well worth a visit.
