Hungarian kings, Transylvanian princes, Ottomans and Austrian emperors used this enclave to dominate whatwas, once, one of the vastand and most important kingdoms on the European continent. It is for this reason that the Buddha Castle was the object of desire on the part of those who sought to dominate this country. Internal conjuring and foreign invasions have marked its history and architecture. Throughout our visit we will uncover stone by stone each of the secrets it hides. We will see such famous places as the Vienna Gate or the Church of Mary Magdalene. Fancy something sweet? No problem! The visit will also pass by the Ruszwurm Pastry, one of the most emblematic places within the citadel. The Buddha Castle Tour will also take us through the best views of the city, specifically those that we can observe from the Fisherman’s Bastion. Being part of the origin of Budapest the fortress of Buda also houses the Old Town Hall. In about three hours we will know the old fortified citadel of Buddha as a whole.
