  • Walked through here by happy accident. A film crew was filming so couldn't get too close. But the buildings were just perfect and amazing.

  • The castle , park and surrounding is a must do in Budapest. The park is very calming, the castle is beautiful. It is very closes to the thermal baths. I'd recommend you spend a morning around the castle and the park. Get to the the fine art museum, and finish up relaxing in the thermal baths.
  • The castle was really beautiful. Many great spots to take pictures. We did not visit the museum inside because it was closed at the time we were there however the entire courtyard is free to explore. A must when visiting Budapest!
