It is entirely closed off for now while it is being restored and renovated. Don't climb the steep and picturesque road until it's finished.

Major refurbishment going on. Place is closed. You can get to the statue and take a picture with it. If that's your thing then go for it, otherwise save yourself the mild climb and wait till mid 2017.

Off the beaten track, but not entirely remote, this could be an absolute gem of an attraction if it was better looked after. The shop was closed and pretty derelict when we visited, but the tomb is in good condition. This must have been a...More

Gul Baba's tomb is one less known spot so the place is quiet, not crowded, and fascinating as it's one of the last standing memories of the Ottoman Empire in Budapest. I think that in spring the smell and bloom of the roses -it was...More
