when we said we will go to buda, our 2 day long couch surfer said; "boring" . True, there are only old people and tourists but also history lies there with its arm open. We ran to those arms. We walked through the whole Buda ( since i am a pain in .ss when it comes to find the true route ) then found the Royal Palace. It was a great view. Contras were that, some parts were under construction and the restaurants had tourist based prices but we still had enjoyed very much visiting the Budapest History Museum and Hungarian National Gallery.
