Did you know?

The Lion's Court is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Buda Castle.

This is where the first reconstructed ornate hall of the Palace of Buda Castle, the St Stephen's Hall, was opened to the public on 20 August 2021, the feast day of the founder of our state..

Itt kapott helyet a Budavári Palota elsőként rekonstruált díszes terme, a Szent István-terem, amit 2021. augusztus 20-án, államalapító királyunk ünnepnapján tettek látogathatóvá.

The doors of the Budapest History Museum - from where the St Stephen's Café opens - are adorned with allegorical sculptural groups of Károly Senyei's War and Peace.
