|The Gellért Hill and the Citadel|
The highest point of downtown Budapest and its fortress.
The Gellért hill received its name after St. Gellért who came to Hungary as a missionary bishop upon the invitation of King St. Stephen I. around 1000 a.d. His task was helping the Hungarians convert to Christianity.
The fortress of the Citadel was built by the Habsburgs in 1851 to demonstrate their control over the Hungarians. In the mid 20th century it was converted to a tourist center. From the panorama terraces one can have a stunning view of the city.
