This was a unique place. I went on Dec 26 and no one was manning the window for tours but you could walk around and look. It’s worth going in and checking it out!

The rock church is actually a cave church. The walls of the several rooms are all natural rocks. At the entrance is a small platform, where is a statue of St Stephen with his horse. The unfortunate king has such an awful, booby face that...More

I'm not a fan of churches, but this one is rather unique and well worth a look round. Being built inside the cave is certainly something different. Headphones and an audio guide are provided should you want further information whilst inside.

Interesting place if you want to see the inside of a rock or learn intricate details of every stick of furniture in that place. However, if you want to know the history of the founding order or the story of the closure/reopening, read a guidebook....More

Not an expected destination but came across it while exploring. The admission price is very small and worth the look at the lovely cave chapel within. It's a peaceful place and well looked after. Definitely worth a short look!

Gellert Hill
If you want to treat your camera to some amazing
scenery, Gellért Hill is a must on your itinerary. A
funicular journey from the Chain Bridge along the
hillsides provides a fast connection between Buda and
Pest, hoisting visitors to panoramic vistas. Once on
top of the hill, you’ll find the Citadel dominate the
landscape with its imposing 19th century construction,
a site that’s hard to keep your eyes on without being
