The Matthias Church and the Fisherman’s Bastion I posted about last time are pictured on top left-side of this map. The areas marked with yellow circles are also very beautiful, but the streets were under construction when I was there in May.
This region is called the Castle District (A Budai Várnegyed), and it’s a must-see for all those new to Budapest. We started walking from the Matthias Church to the other end of the hill where the Buda Castle, National Széchényi Library and the Budapest History Museum were located. We stayed on Szent György utca and walked around until we were back where we started. It probably took us a good two hours or so. Highly recommended!
Make sure you take enough water around with you so that you don’t get ripped off. You’ll also pass by a small cluster of stands selling all kinds of bits and bobs, but resist it if you can because you’ll be better off spending your money at the Great Market Hall in town.
