This is probably one of my favourite walks. Ever.
I don’t think I had really planned it. Hadn’t researched any photos and decided to wing the day. So I was kind of blown away by the architecture and views.
I started my walk across the Liberty Bridge and began my climb towards the Citadella. You can get a bus or tram to the Citadella as it’s quite a way up Gellert Hill (235 metres)!
Citadella is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is now a symbol of freedom.
I actually had my first try of archery here. And I was terrible! I don’t even think I managed to hit the target. It wasn’t that far either.
Next was Buda Castle, a grand baroque palace built in 1769. Buda Castle is now home to the Budapest National Gallery and Budapest History Museum.
I love the titled roof of Matthias Church. You can go up the tower for a better look.
Probably my favourite part of the walk was Fisherman’s Bastion. This fortress is beautiful and wouldn’t look out of place in a Disney Princess movie.
And I loved the colours of this nearby street.
From here I went to Margaret Island for a walk around the park, built on the River Danube.
The Hungarian Parliament building is also impressive so I recommended visiting whilst in the area too.
And I ended my evening in the Pinball Museum (which I definitely recommend).
