Hilltop Terraces with a View Over Budapest

Located in Buda’s Castle District, the Buda Castle was completed in 1265 and served as the royal palace of Hungary. It was later occupied by the Turkish leader Suleiman until 1686, when the Hungarians managed to take it back, though almost totally destroying it in the process. The grand castle has fantastic terraces, staircases and balconies where you get a breath-taking panorama view of the whole city. It is a castle and palace complex of European grandeur with many historical statues in its cobblestone courtyards. Buda Castle currently houses the Hungarian National Gallery and the National Library.
