With a vast array of sites, museums, as well as streets, squares, restaurants,
cafés and stores with a unique atmosphere,
Buda Castle and the whole of the Castle District are among the most well-known and frequently visited tourist attractions of Budapest. The Royal Palace, where many battles and wars took place from the 13th century, is a symbol for Hungary. In addition to three churches, including the Matthias Church (or Buda Castle Main Coronation Church), located on Szentháromság (Holy Trinity) Square—a monument with long history, one of the most beautiful and well-known catholic churches of the city, the Castle District also includes five museums, several buildings of historical interest as well as memorial sites and theatres. The Fishermans Bastion and the square in front of the National Gallery offer a breathtaking view of one of the most beautiful sections of the Danube.
