  • Lots of steps leading up to the castle

    A lot of steps will lead you up to the castle of Buda and the Fisher Bastion.In my opinion it is best to walk UPwards to the Fisher-Bastion first, as an ordinary street will go up the hill smoothly - just follow the few cars and the public bus.These steps are great to walk down, but upwards they are quite tireding, and walking down the steps will...
