Hungary’s capital, Budapest was formed by Buda, Óbuda and Pest in 1873. Buda is the part of the city that is located to the west of the Danube river. There are several bridges connecting the two sides. The nicest and probably the most popular is Lanchid (Chain Bridge).
The most important site to see for a tourist arriving to Budapest is definitely the Buda Royal Palace area which is a UNESCO World Heritage site. The Buda Castle area is the home of the Royal Castle, Saint George Square, Széchenyi Library, Fisherman’s Bastion, Church Matthias, Hungarian National Gallery and the Labyrinth of Buda.
This area is an 8-minute walk from Lanchid 19 city hotel. The Funiculaire or the so-called Castle Bus can also take passengers to the Palace from Clark Ádám Square, which is a 2-minute walk from the boutique hotel.
Buda is a highly recommended place to see for visitors arriving to the capital of Hungary. It is a calm, cozy part of the city with many hotels, good restaurants, pubs, shopping areas, baths and parks.
