Matthias Church (Church of Our Lady of Buda) is located in front of the Fisherman’s Bastion at the heart of Buda’s Castle District. It was originally built in Romanesque style in 1015, although no archaeological remains exist.
The current building was constructed in the florid late Gothic style in the second half of the 14th century and was extensively restored in the late 19th century.
Gellért Hill is a 235 m high hill overlooking the Danube. It was named after St. Gerard who was stoned, pierced with a lance, and his body thrown from the hill into the Danube.
At the top of the hill is the Citadel, from which a view is available to look down both directions of the Danube.
The Citadel was built after the 1848–49 Hungarian uprising by the ruling Habsburg Austrians, as it was a prime, strategic site for shelling both Buda and Pest in the event of a future revolt.
Gellért (Italian (980 – 1046) was the first Bishop of Csanád in the Kingdom of Hungary from around 1030 to his death. He is venerated as a saint in the Roman Catholic Church and is the patron of Budapest.
Heroes’ Square (Hősök tere) is one of the major squares in Budapest, noted for its iconic statue complex featuring the Seven Chieftains of the Magyars and other important national leaders, as well as the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

The Great Market Hall (Central Market Hall, Hungarian “Nagyvásárcsarnok”) is the largest and oldest indoor market in Budapest.
The Great Market Hall is located at the end of the famous pedestrian shopping street Váci Street and on the Pest side of the Liberty Bridge at Fővám square.
Most of the stalls on the ground floor offer produce, meats, pastries, candies, spices, and spirits such as paprika and caviar.
The second floor has mainly eateries and souvenirs.
I do not like shopping with woman, so I am going back to the hotel alone.
