A section of the previously closed ruins of what was once the royal stables have been opened to visitors in Buda Castle. The green areas and flowerbeds, and paving of Szent György Square has also been renewed.

Parts of the ruins of the Royal Stables, which were destroyed after World War II, have been opened to the public, the NAtional Hauszman Program has announced on Facebook.

The previously neglected and fenced-off area has been returned to public use. The ruins beside Szent György Square have been given new pavements, flowerbeds, decorative lighting and a drinking fountain. Stones and oak beams found on the site were used to make benches for the area. More of these can be found on the other side of Szent György Street, in the immediate vicinity of the Royal Palace under the trees.

The post also highlights that the walkways and pavements of the Square have been renewed. The fence surrounding the ruins of Archduke Joseph's Palace, which will be rebuilt in the coming years, has been replaced with a new fence made of large wooden planks. The green surfaces and flowerbeds on the square have also been revitalised. “The renewed Royal Palace in Buda Castle will be with a long walk in 2021!" stated the National Hauszann Program.
