Places to visit in Budapest

Plan. Walk around Buda partially by car, partially on foot.


From Margaret Island we go to the Fisherman's Bastion of Budapest. Here we take a walk and enjoy the views and fabulous architecture. From there, by car to the palace and the fortress, then after a short walk, go down to the Svoboda bridge - one of the most beautiful bridges in the city and end the walk on the most famous market in Budapest.

The Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the Buda castle area is most often called the Matthias Church in honor of the Hungarian king Matthias Hunyadi, who ruled in the 15th century from 1458 to 1490. According to legend, the first church in this place was founded by King Istvan I the Holy in 1015 and consecrated in honor of the Virgin Mary. This small church was completely destroyed in 1242 during the Mongol invasion. After the expulsion of the Mongols, King Bela IV began the construction of a new church in this place. After the proclamation of Buda as the capital of Hungary, reconstruction began throughout the city, as well as this church. Under King Louis the Great, who ruled from 1342 to 1382, the three-nave Romanesque church of the Virgin Mary was rebuilt, expanded and acquired Gothic forms. Since the second half of the XIV century, the church became the parish church of German immigrants, there was a cemetery nearby.

The fisherman's bastion was erected in 1899-1905 according to the project of the architect Fridies Shulek and was conceived as an architectural background for the Matthias Church. Despite its name, the Fisherman's Bastion never had a defensive significance. Previously, on the site of the Fisherman's Bastion, there was an area surrounded by a fortress wall where fish trade was taking place. In the Middle Ages, Buda fishermen defended this section of the fortress wall in the event of a military threat, and the Fisherman's Bastion became a monument to the brave guild of fishermen.

Fortuna Street ends on the Vienna Gate Square, which is closed in the north by the Hungarian State Archives building, built in 1923. A huge amount of archival materials related to the history of the country is stored here.

The Buda Castle - an irregularly shaped castle with internal towers - was built on a limestone layer on the southern slope of the mountain. Limestone tufa cavities everywhere form a complex system of tunnels and caves in the mountain. The core of the Fortress area was once, today the nonexistent Tower of Istvan with the buildings surrounding it. From the north-west, the fortress was dissociated from the residential area under construction by a traverse with towers. The Kelendfeld Gate under Bolshoi Rondella, built later, is located on the southern slope of the mountain. The Royal Palace, defenses, courtyards and the outer fortress wall of the fortress were built, completed and rebuilt for many centuries.   Photo: % 8F_% D0% BA% D1% 80% D0% B5% D0% BF% D0% BE% D1% 81% D1% 82% D1% 8C.jpg # / media / File: Buda fortress.jpg
