Erszébet Sáska - Executive HousekeeperMy Budapest tip:
The Castle District

I am a proud Budapester, and for me, it is in the Buda Castle District that I find myself the proudest and happiest. I love wandering in and out of the quaint alleyways on the cobbled streets, popping into a bar for a glass of wine and taking in the sweeping vistas all over my beautiful Budapest. I love the Castle District’s play of scale: it has the biggest royal landmarks on the one hand, such as the Palace and Fisherman’s Bastion. On the other hand, you have the contrasting remnants of the original medieval settlement, full of tiny houses with Baroque or neo-Classicist façades. Nearby is another delicate landmark, the Gothic Matthias Church. When in the Castle District, I would stop at one of the oldest and most traditional family-owned Hungarian patisseries, Ruszwurm. Its menu features an irresistible selection of original and signature Hungarian pastries, such as Esterházy and Dobos tortes. I always treat myself to something yummy there.
