More sights of Budapest (Hungary)

As promised, here are some more of my favourite places and things in Budapest! I won´t bore you with historical facts, especially because I wouldn´t be able to guarantee that they´re true.

 

Royal Palace

Right up on Castle Hill, on the Western side of Budapest (named “Buda”), you´ll find the Royal Palace. It can be seen from across the river and is particularily pleasant to observe at night. Today it´s divided into three section, a library, a museum and something I don´t remember. In my opinion, it´s absolutely sufficiant to look at it from the outside.

Architecture

On the one hand, Budapest has areas which look quite posh, at least in my eyes. Very beautifully renovated buildings. On the other hand, certain areas are rough and edgy, full of street art or modern vibes.

Vajdahunyad Castle 

Behind the “Heroes´ Square and over a bridge, a fairytale castle is located in a park/forest. What made it so extraordinary for me, was the broad variety of architectural building styles.

Gellert Hill

When I stayed in Budapest last year, I forced myself to wake up early enough to watch sunrise on Gellert Hill. Now I sure am glad I did. Going up the hill by foot takes about half an hour, and you can´t really lose sight of the target if you keep an eye on the statue at the top.

Central Station

Even though this probably isn´t on the typical travel itinerary, the Central Station is a nice place to visit if you´ve got some extra time.

Buda Castle Hill

If you´re visiting the Royal Castle, you might as well take a look around. The Fisherman´s Bastion isn´t the only attraction.
