About District I – Várkerület (Castle District)
A charming district found on the Buda side of the city, Várkerület is home to a number of Budapest’s most beautiful landmarks and, thanks to its hilly layout, is a great place to go for stunning panoramic views over Pest and the River Danube. A slightly more residential area, it’s peaceful at night and popular by day with visitors looking to tick off the prime attractions from their list. Colorful buildings, cobblestone streets and traditional cafés can all be found in this charming historic district.
See and Do
Visit some of the city’s most famous sights: the Fisherman’s Bastion, Buda Castle and Gellért Hill are all located here and can all be visited in the space of a day. Art lovers should head to the Hungarian National Gallery to check out Hungarian art from throughout the country’s history.
Eat and Drink
For traditional Hungarian pastries at one of Budapest’s oldest cafés, head to the small – but perfectly formed – Ruszwurm coffeehouse.
