Buda Castle

Around Budapest - Sights

The Royal Palace in Szent György tér is one of the most emblematic architectural masterpieces of the cityscape, and the building easiest to recognize from the Pest side of the Danube. The Castle was home to the kings of Hungary from the 13th century. Medieval walls and a few buildings have survived from that period, but the district underwent a major transformation according to deisgns by Miklós Ybl and Alajos Hauszmann in the 19th century. The rooms and halls of the Royal Palace were not reconstructed, and the building today functions as a complex, modern cultural institution. It is home to the Hungarian National Gallery, the National Széchényi Library and the Budapest History Museum.The annual Buda Castle Wine Festival is also held here, in addition to several other events of culture and gastronomy.
