Buda Castle: a must-see World Heritage Site

Due to its many World Heritage Sites and many other attractions and landmarks, it is said to be one of the most-beautiful cities in Europe. Its visitor numbers certainly prove this to be true. Towering over the city is Buda Castle. This imposing edifice dates back to the 13th century. Two major museums are located inside the castle, namely the Budapest History Museum and the Hungarian National Gallery. The National Széchényi Library, which is the national library of Hungary, can also be found here. Its collection of rare books, codices and manuscripts is worth a visit!
