Buda Castle

Buda Castle, originally uploaded by andreaban2009.
Buda Castle is on the Buda side of Budapest which meant we had to walk across the Chain Bridge to get there. Quite a long walk but because the weather was nice and crisp and COLD....it was a lovely experience.

The castle is built on the tip of Castle Hill. And to get to the top, we took the Castle Hill Funicular. ( Thankfully they accepted creditcards cos I didn't have a single forinth on me the duration of the trip) This poor castle has been destroyed and rebuilt many times. It currently houses the Hungarian National Gallery and the Budapest History Museum. No chance of entering as we made it there well after 7pm.

Interesting face: The labyrinth of Buda Castle can ( and has) housed as many as 10,000 people. How amazing is that?
