The restoration of the parks and walls of Buda Castle is continuing with work to renovate the retaining walls and walkways throughout the Palace. The elegant historical gardens will regain their former elegance.

The National Hauszman Program has announced the next phase of the restoration of the castle walls, parks and walkways around Buda Castle on Facebook.

The program aims to ensure that residents and visitors to the Castle District can safely and comfortably walk around its walls and rest in its gardens.

The work continues with the revitalisation of the plants along the Ellyps Promenade and in the Southern Gardens. The work is being carried out following the examinations and recommendations of specialists in garden and landscape design.

The post highlights that the affected areas were overgrown with several invasive tree species that have damaged the caste or retaining walls. The National Hauszmann Program aims to restore the walkways and gardens to their former glory by removing these.

Due to decades of neglect, the walls of the castle and retaining walls throughout the garden have become unstable, or pose a safety risk. These are all being renovated or restored.
