I found it quite peaceful and serene. The cave is divided in different sections and are clearly marked for the audio guide you get at the entrance. The guide is pretty good. Because everyone was listening to this, the place kept the calm and quiet...More

This was very unusual. It is a church inside the mountain. The stories of the Communists walling it up and how they resurrected it was very interesting.

What an amazing church. Nestled into the hill, this church is a must see. Gorgeous detail & interesting history. I found the audio tour very helpful

Inexpensive entrance fee includes an audio tour. If religious tourism isn’t your thing, this may not be very interesting. Small church with several areas including ornate wood carvings. The cave is stuccoed/cemented over so there is nothing visually interesting like in many other religious sites.

We came across this by accident. At first it just looks like some sort of cavern or cave entrance and we made our way up to it just to 'explore'. For a minimal entrance fee you are able to look around: the audio guide is...More

It’s an amazing and well kept church. There is a user friendly speaker system that helps you around and the experience inside is unlike anything you will experience in Budapest.

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
