Royal Palace

The Royal Palace dominates the Castle District. This is not original but incorporates features from the original historic structures of the 17th, 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. The original palace was destroyed by the pan-European Christian army which liberated Buda from the Turks in 1686. Another reconstruction was burnt to the ground during the 1944-45 siege of Budapest.

Royal Palace

This post-WWII reconstruction includes Baroque and Gothic elements and now houses the Hungarian National Gallery, Budapest History Museum and the National Széchenyi Library.
