Places in Pictures: Buda Castle District

Places in Pictures: Buda Castle District | Broke Girl Abroad

The best part of my visit to Budapest was hands down exploring the castle district. Imagine a castle so enormous and grand that it needed its own district. Far out, right?

There’s so much to see and do here, but I’ll walk you through the highlights. I visited about an hour or so before sunset. It was stunning.

I only budgeted a small amount of time, and had to rush through to see it all before it got too dark. In reality, you’re better off dedicating half a day to this area (I cover this in my guide). Reason? So. Many. Museums. All of them fantastic.

Anyways, suffice it to say that you’ll definitely want to make this a key part of your Budapest trip. So let’s get going!

If you’re in Pest, the most beautiful and quickest way to get to the district is via the landmark Széchenyi Chain Bridge.
