The Castle District
This World Heritage Site sits above the city on the Buda side of the capital. It can be approached on the funicular railway, or by bus. This oldest part of the city is full of quaint courtyards, cobbled squares, cafés and restaurants, and contains a number of important places to visit: the Matthias Coronation Church, the Castle, the former Royal Palace, the Military Museum and the National Gallery. The views over to Pest from the Fisherman’s Bastion are spectacular.
