Dreamy spots are scattered all across Budapest, but the real magic starts when you cross one of its many bridges and finally reach the Buda side. Castle Hill is home to some of the most beautiful buildings in this part of the city, and these three deserve a spot on your bucket list.

Buda Castle

The former royal palace has been one of Budapest’s most recognizable buildings for centuries, and its beauty hasn’t faded away to this day. This castle complex is now home to the Hungarian National Gallery and the Budapest History Museum, but you’ll discover many more magical spots while simply roaming its grounds.

Fisherman’s Bastion

If we had to pick a single spot in Budapest that looks straight out of fairy tale, Fisherman’s Bastion would make the cut. This 19th-century fortress will take your breath away with its Neo-Romanesque lookout terraces and towers that offer some of the best panoramic views of the city.

Matthias Church

Located in front of the Fisherman’s Bastion, this charming church was built in late Gothic style in the 14th century. It’s one of the largest and most historically significant churches in Budapest, and it’s now home to the Ecclesiastical Art Museum.
