The Citadel (Citadella)
The Citadel (Citadella) Budapest Reviews
Monument to the past Feb 12, 2017
I visit Citadella three times already. From the top of the Citadel, there is a best panoramic view over the city, over the Danube and its eight bridges.
It is a huge complex. It offers two specific "side" of Hungarian history. First is a wide fortress and second is a huge Socialistic monument - Statue of Liberty (Szabadsag szobor). It is a surprise to see all that in middle Europe even if you know Hungarian history. Both are very powerful monuments.
Grab your camera and enjoy it!

what a view! Apr 17, 2013
We were doing the hop-on hop off tour, and the citadell is an obligated hop-off. The bus actually stops so you can go walk and take a look.
First you will see a lot of souvenir stores, and on the right some militar tanks.
Then you can start seeing the landscape, and walk by the huge statues.. it's awesome
I have seen landscapes in my life, and I can name some very beautiful spots that are worth it. But this is beyond any description. From here you can see the Danube and on the bank the parlament, and the city of Pest. On the other side the Buda Castle. The cruises..
Definitely a must.

There is two things you can do in the Citadel, go down in an old german Bunker and see the best view over Budapest.
The Bunker and Wax Exhibition is ok with some nice pictures and some old items from the second world war, but its nothing special.
You can go inside the Bunker for 1200 HUF or you can just see the view from the Citadel for HUF 400. The view from the Citadel is included if you pay the admission for the Bunker
PS. Normally i dont upload pictures while i travel, but i just had to upload the picture i took from the top. 28mm Focal Length, F16, 30sek.
