Buda Castle District is probably BUdapest's most visited sight. The present Castle Hill was populated after the Mongol invasion in 1241 – 1242, when King Béla IV decided to build his own defensive castle and establish his capital here. In the 14th century, its population numbered to approximately 8,000. The Vienna Gate, situated at the northern entrance to the Castle District, is a 1930s reconstruction of the medieval original, which was destroyed during the 1686 Siege of Buda, when the Holy League and the Habsburg army recaptured Hungary from the Turks. • The National Archives of Hungary – built in the 1920s - is situated on the west side of the Vienna Gate. The National Archives is the nation's record keeper, it accommodates documentation of the state establishment and its legal institutions. • The Mary Magdalene tower is located on Kapisztrán square (tér). The Romanesque church of Mary Magdalene, one of the original structures of the castle and built by the Franciscans, dates back to the 13th century. It was the only church that was functioning under the Ottoman occupation as all the other Christian churches were converted into mosques. Most of the church was seriously damaged during WWII, leading to its demolition in 1952, leaving just the tower behind. • The Military History Museum is situated in the northwest part of the Castle District. The museum hosts the permanent exhibition of typical weaponry and military history of Hungary. • The small, but utterly captivating Museum of Music History, housed in a magnificient baroque building in Táncsics Street, will take you through the Hungarian music history highlights, form Liszt Ferenc to Kodály Zoltán and Bartók Béla. There are frequent concerts in the Museum, which can be visited free of charge with the museum entry ticket. • The Buda Castle Labyrinth (address: Úri Street 9.) is in fact part of the extended caves system which has been functioning since the middle ages in many ways: as a shelter, a cellar, a hospital, and even a prison. Its most famous underground “guest” was - as prisoner of King Matthias - Vlad Tepes, the infamous Comte Dracula. The labyrinth’s walkable section comprises 1200 meters of romantic arched corridors and accommodates a so called Dracula chamber, opera waxworks and the most beautiful caves, of course. • The Telephony Museum - part of the Postal Museum - is located in Úri Street; it displays the interesting history of the Hungarian telecommunication from 1881 onwards. • The Golden Eagle Pharmacy Museum in Tárnok Street is the oldest pharmacy of the Castle district, built in classicist and baroque style in 1745. The museum can be visited only on pre-registration. • At the end of Tárnok Street which runs parallel with Úri Street, you can find Trinity Square (Szentháromság tér) with an imposing number of historical buildings and monuments, among many others: the old Buda Municipality, the baroque Trinity Statue, and the outstanding Matthias Church. • Matthias Church: the current Roman Catholic church was founded by King Béla IV after the Mongol invaders left Hungary in 1242 in complete ruins. The building of the church started in 1255 and the church was originally dedicated to the Assumption of Our Lady. The church was used as a coronation church by Hungarian kings for centuries, also a mosque for over 150 years by the Ottoman Turks. It has undergone numerous enlargements through the centuries; our greatest kings have put their mark on it. It was a mosque during the Turkish rule and was renovated in baroque style in the 17th century. The church won its present form between 1895 and 1903 when it was rebuilt by the plans of Frigyes Schulek, the star architect of those years. The frescoes in the church are the works of famous Hungarian painters such as Károly Lotz, Bertalan Székely and Mihály Zichy. Visitors can enjoy both the exterior and the interior of Matthias church and also see its amazing Treasury and the crypt. • The Fishermen’s Bastion was built at the same time as the last renovation of Matthias Church on the remains of a medieval fortress wall. Its architect was the same Frigyes Schulek whose name is inseparable from Matthias Church’s last renovation at the end of the 19th century. Schulek tried to adjust the architectural style of the Bastion to that of the Church. The building has never served defence purposes and received its name from the fishermen who had earlier been living in that area in the Middle Ages. The seven towers in the Fishermen’s Bastion symbolize the seven leaders of the Magyar tribes who conquered the territory of our land in 896. • The Hospital in the Rock is in two minutes’ walk from Matthias Church. The entrance of the hospital is situated under Tóth Árpád promenade (sétány), at the foot of the castle wall. • Sándor Palace, standing near the Royal Palace is the residence of the present President of the Republic of Hungary. Nearby is the top station of the Buda Castle funicular.

Unfortunately the Museum of Applied Arts on Üllői street is closed for several years for major renovation works, you can find smaller thematic exhibitions in the Villa. It is a rare gem, do not miss it! „After several years of closure, the György Ráth Villa of the Museum of Applied Arts (1068 Budapest, Városligeti fasor 12.) can be visited again, where a new permanent exhibition titled Art Nouveau – a Hungarian Perspective, displaying the finest selection of the Museum of Applied Arts’ Art Nouveau collection, can be visited. In the villa the age of the last universal style is revived. Three decisive schools of Art Nouveau, the British, the Austrian and the French are presented in interiors. Bugatti’s exclusive pieces of furniture reveal the influence of Oriental art whereas the inspiring role of the Transylvanian roots and of the national past can be realized in the Hungarian art of the turn of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.” http://www.imm.hu/en/contents/262,R%C3%A1th+Gy%C3%B6rgy-villa

New York Palace Café This is like a renaissance palace which is full of sparkling chandeliers dangling from high ceilings adorned by spectacular frescoes, it's one of the oldest cafes in Budapest, dating back 125 years. The menu is made up of Hungary's most traditional desserts, including around 16 cakes, but of course, it's not only the cuisine that everyone comes here for -- it's the magnificent setting. And , of course the history. In fact, Hungary's most influential newspapers were edited on the second floor of the building. According to legend, on its opening night, a group of writers, including renowned author Molnár Ferenc, were so taken with the place, they threw the key to the main door into the Danube so that it could stay open all night ;-)
