Erected in the early 1700's to warn away the Black Plague, the column is a memorial to those who died of this horrible disease. Originally smaller this current column was made larger when the plague returned, presumably doing the... More

This column is situated in the middle of Trinity Square which was named after this column. It is a quite detailed statue which was built to celebrate the end of the plague and hopefully protect the citizens from future plagues. The Holy Trinity sits atop the column with the rest of the column covered in angels and saints. You can't... More

St. Matthias Church and Fisherman's Bastion are the two most visited sights in Budapest, St. Matthias being the most important. They are side by side in the Castle District. As you approach the church, you enter Liberty Square and the Holy Trinity Column is front and center in this square. Built to commemorate the end of the bubonic plague and... More

Nice monument, well located. If you're dropping by the Buda Castle, it may be worth visiting this place too. Just be prepared to climb up a hill.

Staying in District I / Buda

Neighbourhood Profile
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 events attended by the royal family and was the chosen place for the coronation of Franz Josef, one of the Hungarian Habsburg kings. Having admired the palace and the church, a visit to Buda will be unforgettable by the stunning and memorable panorama over Pest offered by the seven towered Fishermen’s Bastion.
