Things To Do Near St. Matthew's Church in Budapest

A gem and must see of the Castle District, the Matthias Church, along with the Fishermen's Bastion and Royal Palace comprise the set of landmarks without which the Castle Hill would lose its character. Located bang smack in the middle of the District, it seems to draw all the other attractions into its circumference!

Our first five picks are all located around of the Holy Trinity Square (no. 5), the main Square of the Castle District. Matthias Church has the honour of a majestic neighbour, the Fishermen's Bastion, our number one pick with its priceless view of the Pest side. Just behind it runs a cobble stone street from one end of the Old Town to the other called Úri Utca, or Lord's Street, lined by lovely Baroque buildings. Once you've got these sites under your belt, pop into our fourth pick, the House of Hungarian Wines for some wine tasting, or our fifth pick, the Marzipan Museum located in the Hotel Hilton to feast not just your eyes but also your stomach on some delicious marzipan figures!

Once in the Castle District, skipping the Royal Palace would be a sin. The beautiful Matthias Fountain found in its northwest courtyard is also a must see. Located inside the Palace is the Hungarian National Gallery, especially recommended for the appreciators of fine arts.

For the last two attractions we have some underground (in its literal sense) entertainment in store! The Buda Castle Labyrinth along Úri Street used to be a storage place, wine cellar and bomb shelter amongst others made freely accessible for tourists today. The King's Wine Cellar and Museum, a series of wine cellars from the 14ht century, was only recently opened up to the joy of locals and tourists alike.
