Chain Bridge and Buda Castle

Rising 48 meters above the Danube, the Castle Hill or Várhegy nevertheless dominates the city. This hill is the place where Budapest was founded. It is a small, densely built rock, with the Buda Castle as the most prominent building.

 

Buda Castle is the historical castle and palace complex of the Hungarian kings in Budapest, first completed in 1265.
