Castle District

The Buda Castle is the palace complex of the Hungarian Kings. It was built in 1265, but the Baroque castle as we know it today was added between 1749 and 1769. The castle was declared as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987. The castle now hosts the Hungarian National Gallery and The Budapest History Museum. The site sits on the tip of Castle Hill in a part of the city known as Castle District.
