So happy to show this destination that we visit. Actually we didn´t have any feelings about this city before we got an invitation but now we love it! Did you know that the fab music video Fireworks by Katy Perry was filmed her at the castle?
If you want to take the sweetest way up to the castle district, take the funicular. The view during the ride is beautiful. How happy you become when your about to visit the castle!
Buda Castle and its many courtyards host several festivals and events all over the year including an international wine festival, a beer festival and a folk art festival. Admission to the Castle itself is free, you’ll have to pay entry fee to the museums and the Hungarian National Gallery.
I’m in love with the fence that surround the building!
The Castle Hill is beautiful and here you will also find Budapest Old Town.
This is Matthias Church!
The king had both of his weddings here. His coat of arms with the black raven is still visible on the south tower. The first king crowned here in 1308 was Charles Robert and the last one Charles IV of Habsburg in 1916. During the Turkish occuppation it was converted to a mosque and after the reconquest of Buda it was reconstructed in baroque style but it still preserves some of its oriental atmosphere.
Fisherman’s Bastion is like a fairy tale! It were built in the 19th century to serve as a lookout tower for the best panoramic views in Budapest. Designed by architect Frigyes Schulek and built between 1899 and 1905, the whitestoned Fisherman’s Bastion is a combination of neo-Gothic and neo-Romanesque architecture and consists of turrets, projections, parapets and climbing stairways.
In medieval times, the fish market was nearby and the bastion was built to commemorate the fisherman who protected this part of the city.

Visiting the Széchenyi Bath I was finally able to put on my bikini!
One thing I knew about Hungary as a child is that they are really good at water polo. Budapest isn’t called the City of Baths for nothing. Hungary is a land of thermal springs and Budapest remains the only capital city in the world that is rich in thermal waters with healing qualities.
Damn, these beautiful buildings are everywhere! On my way to the smashing Four Seasons Hotel where all the famous usually stay, but I had to stop for a quick snapshot of the building next door. Don’t you just love this architecture!
Welcome to Kiscelli Museum!
I need to check out this venue and to find that clock! So much history, for some it was just a simple time measuring tool, but for many, the clock at Széll Kálmán Square was an iconic meeting point, a spot to arrange dates and a place under which goodbyes were said.
This is what I call a good sign!
The museum’s bigger event room can host up to 350 people. The baroque style buildings were elevated for Trinitarian monks.
