Buda Castle, Budapest Castle District
The Castle District has received its name from the Buda Castle. This region has a significant role in the cultural life of the Hungarian capital city and it’s also one of the most popular areas for tourists. Here you can find several medieval memories and other houses from the 17. and 18. centuries. Of course, the most famous building is the castle which became the part of the World Heritage in 1987.
Under the ground, there is an extensive system of caves and cellars which was used as a hospital and storage by the Hungarian and German army in the 2nd World War. It can be visited even nowadays.
Besides the Castle, we recommend other sights such as the Fisherman’s Bastion or the Mathias Church. This imposing Roman Catholic church was originally designed in Romanesque style but in the 14th century, it was rebuilt in Gothic style. The Fisherman’s Bastion represents Eclecticism. It was built to celebrate the millennium of the Hungarian Conquest at the end of the 19th century but it was unexpectedly beloved and popular so it became a permanent sight.
