Description
Despite the people of Pest’s best efforts, they just couldn’t keep those destructive Mongols and Turks out of town. While invaders saw the defensive wall meant to protect the city as more of a joke ... Read more
than a deterrent, it eventually did find a purpose, as a beautiful city landmark. The remaining sections of the wall are some of the last remnants of medieval times left in the city and worth investigating.

When you walking around those walls you can really feel the history. It's very good to see them.

This really impressed me when I first saw it when I was 16 and has stayed with me ever since. Budapest must have just risen out of the Hungarian plains as a beacon.

It's something that you don't get to see that often these days. This preserved part of the old city is an amazing landmark that people flock to still today. It's a integral part of the hill and steeped in history.
