This area is named after St. Gellert, the first Hungarian martyr. Legend has it that in 1047, while attempting to convert the pagans, Gellert was forced into a wooden barrel filled with nails and then rolled down this steep hill to a bloody death.
- Right next to the Danube River, Gellért Hill is the largest hill in Pest, topped with a beautiful park. Gellért Hill is home to the famed Citadel, the Wax Museum in the Bunker, Liberty Statue, Cave Church, and more. Located in Budapest's XIth District, Gellért Hill is named for the saint who was thrown to his death from the hill. Here you can find the best panoramic view of the city.
