The Castle District in the Buda section of Budapest towers about 60 meters above the river Danube which is located to the west of the district and cuts through the city of Budapest. The whole city can be seen by visiting the vantage points in the Castle Hill. Visiting this place that is surrounded by gothic churches with stained glass and has red marble stairways, gothic facades, bastions, etc. feels a little like time travel to the Renaissance.

The Buda Castle, the Holy Trinity Square, and the Church of the Holy Lady are some of the major buildings that a tourist who visits the castle district would probably want to see. Another interesting place is called Fishermen’s Bastion which looks like a small castle.
