Closed on mondays, but should be worth it.

These ruins are well preserved and interesting with a rebuilt wall so that you can see how it was back in the day. We did not go into the museum as we were in a time crunch, but our guide took us here and told us about the many out post the Romans had in this region. There is also... More

It is relatively easy to get there by train, only 6 or 7 stops after the metro, it takes about 15 minutes. There are remains from an aquaduct and a Roman amphitheatre, but the main thing is the baths. It is newly renovated, but it still feels like the communication lacks a bit. They actually have a lot of high... More

In the period of the 1st to 5th century (AD) Aquincum was large roman city with over 30.000 inhabitants. At the museum in Aquincum you can see a small part, a few blocks, of the city. There is also a bath well preserved. There is a certain feeling walking the streets over 2.000 years old and seeing the well organized... More

I'm interested in History and I must tell you that this museum is very interesting for all people who love Roman History and Roman culture. You can visit the museum with a lot of devices from Roman times and in the surroundings you can see the remains of the Roman aqueduct and the amphiteather. You must think that you are... More

This is a really fascinating site, very large, apparently well preserved ancient roman town. I was impressed. Plenty of detailed information, and a tremendous amount of ruins. If you save the invoice from your Buda Castle museum tickets, entry is free within 30 days. About a 40 min walk / subway ride from Buda. Well worth it.

The best part is the ruins, which are densely laid out and easy to see. It is very impressive to see the size and number of ruins in this location and in the neighboring area.

Although it's a bit far from the city center, it's definitely worth a visit. Having a pleasant romantic walk amongst the ancient ruins was a great thing to do. Although it's a bit of a walk from the HEV station, it's worth visiting for a dayout!

The Aquincum in Obuda is really worth visiting, though I wouldn't try walking over to it, especially if you are centered in Pest. Definitely ride the metro or hire a car to transport you over there. Plan for about 2 hours to visit both the outdoor structures and the museum. It doesn't seem to be popular with tourists so you... More
