The nice theatre building is just next to the Sandor Palace on top of Buda Hill. When we visited Buda Hill this time, we could just get a few snapshots on the environment and proceed to other scenic spots nearby.

Unfortunately the former theater now will be the seat of the Hungarian Prime Minister! He thinks that he must have his office in the former kings quater, just above the whole city. So if you want tosee the building, forget it, you won't be able to come closer!

A wonderful cast of young dancers and choreography by Bertalan Vàri; the act was so well-done, they danced with attributes like umbrella's and made music meanwhile ; the music was excellent and the performance was really of a high level; very enjoyed this event and there was a very enthousiast audience; GREAT !

Thank Rogervn

Staying in District I / Buda

Neighbourhood Profile
District I / Buda
The historical center to a city with a multifarious and intricate past, Buda has some of the most outstanding buildings in Europe and an enviable natural landscape with stunning views onto the Danube. Centered around the Royal Palace, it provides a glimpse into the golden years of the Austro-Hungarian empire and the lives led by the aristocracy at the time. Matthias Church, beside the palace, hosted many events attended by the royal family and was the chosen place for the coronation of Franz Josef, one of the Hungarian Habsburg kings. Having admired the palace and the church, a visit to Buda will be unforgettable by the stunning and memorable panorama over Pest offered by the seven towered Fishermen’s Bastion.
