Another famous landmark would be the Buda Royal Palace – a humongous building located at the southern end of the Castle Hill. Having been rebuilt 400 years ago, this antique palace now homes the National Széchenyi Library, Budapest History Museum, and the Hungarian National Gallery. Another famous tourist spot would be the Gellért Hill. Almost visible from everywhere in Budapest, this 14-metre monument is one of the memorable landmarks in the land. With a Freedom Monument on its peak, this monument symbolizes the country’s liberty from the supremacy of the Nazis.
