This fountain at the Castle hill is really amazing especially because of the realness of the sculptures. I loved the dogs with their tongue hanging out of the mouth, really looking alive!

Feels a bit like the Trevi Fountain in Rome! We admired the fountain. Love his hunting dogs, surrounding him. While we were there, the mounted guards stopped in front of the fountain in formation for a moment. Part of the changing of the palace guards?

The matthaias fountain is a small but creative fountain tucked behind the buda castle. If you start at the bottom of the hill you can walk right up and see fishermans bastion then the church, then over to the castle and finally see this fountain...More

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
