Buda Castle, the fortress and palace complex of Hungarian kings, completed in 1265 following the Mongol invasion, was destroyed and rebuilt many times. Built on medieval foundations, the Renaissance structures were destroyed by the Turks. Later, the Baroque Palace burned down, then its reconstructed buildings were damaged during the War of Independence (1848). In the late 19th century Miklós Ybl oversaw the reconstruction and enlargement of the Palace, which was completed in the neo-Baroque style by Alajos Hauszmann.

Margaret island (originally known as Rabbits Island) is a popular recreational, green oasis in the middle of the Danube in central Budapest, long 2,5 km and 500 metres wide.

The ruins of St Margaret's Dominican nunnery are on the east side near the ruins of a Franciscan church. The water tower, built in Art Nouveau style, is over 100 years old.

  • Gellért Hill & the Citadel image

Gellért Hill & the Citadel

Buda, District 1, Budapest, Hungary


The hill got its name after St. Gellért - a missionary bishop who came to Hungary around 1000 AD in order to convert the Hungarians to Christianity. But pagan leaders captured him and rolled him down from the hill in a barrel. The St. Gellért monument and its fountain representing his martyrdom can be found on the Northeastern slope of the hill facing the Elisabeth bridge. The fortress of the Citadel was built by the Habsburgs in 1851 to demonstrate their control over the Hungarians. From the panorama terraces one can have a stunning view of the city. By a short walk one can reach the Liberation Monument.
