Most tourists visit the bridges or the Buda hills first, but have you ever wondered what is under this magnificent city? Budapest has a huge cave system under – most if it is not even open to the public. However, there are some caves that can be visited by anyone. Don’t worry, there are a lot of easier walking tours, but if you are looking for some kind of extremity, we highly recommend one of Mátyás-Hegyi cave’s tours!
The view from the Citadel or even from the Basilica is marvelous, but there’s one hidden gem in Budapest, that not so much tourist knows about: the Water Tower in the middle of Budapest’s beloved island, Margitsziget. The building itself was built in 1911 but was closed from the public for years. Today, it functions as a lookout tower. Worths a visit!
Don’t let the name fool you: in Hungary’s pinball museum, you not only can see the pinballs from a great distance, but you can also play with them! Unfortunately, pinballs went out of fashion in the last decade, so we can’t see them at bars and hotel lobbies anymore. But if you are one of those people who really miss that, we definitely recommend this underground museum! Spend an unforgettable day bringing back childhood memories with pinballs from the ’80s, 90’s and millennial era.

There are three major components that make up the Buda Castle District: the Buda Castle Palace, St. George's Square, and the historic residential area.
