Nicely reconstructed palec, where the Hungarian president resides. You can reach it easily with the Buda hill funicular.

Two serious looking guards in very small guard shacks. Great location. Not too fancy for a presidential palace.

We were lucky enough to see the "change of guards" at Sandor Palace around 9 am in the morning during our visit to Buda Hill late last month. The palace was currently the residence for the President of Hungary and not open for public viewing.

When we were visiting the area of Buda hill and stopped in front of Sandor palace, we were lucky to see the changing of the guards in front of the main entrance.

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

time. Matthias Church, beside the palace, hosted many
