  • Such a beautiful spot. There isn’t a whole lot to do and see but the scenery is really amazing for the area. If you have time I would definitely recommend stopping down here for a little bit lots of stuff to do around the area as well.
  • It is great to see all the Kings/Gentlemen in power that had a history in making Budapest what it is today. Very interesting and impressive. Not seen anything like that in all my travels..
