If you’ve crossed over to the Buda side of the city from Pest, trek uphill to the Buda Castle, or for a small fee, jump on board the vintage Buda Funicular and enjoy the views as you make your way up to Buda Castle. There might be some long queues for the funicular, but don't let that put you off- the funicular runs every 10 minutes, and you'll find yourself quickly moving to the top of the line. Although it's only a short ride, you get magnificent views of the entire city. You’ll be able to see an island in the middle of the River Danube called Margaret Island. This green oasis serves as the ultimate escape for Budapest locals- from flower gardens to fountains; it's the top recreation spot during the summer months. When you get off the funicular set off towards the impressive Buda Castle.   You can buy a Budapest Card for around €20 that will get you free entry to Buda Castle at budacastlebudapest.com and other sites, so it's worth preordering one online before you go. The castle itself is immense and is a Unesco World Heritage Site. Built during the 13th Century, it's a critical historical landmark of Budapest from which you'll learn a lot of the countries history. Give yourself at least a few hours at the castle; there's a lot to see - you can also join a guided tour if you wish. Photo by Tomasz Abramowicz on Unsplash
