There are many monuments in Táncsics Mihály Street in Buda Castle, including the Baroque palace at No. 1, which has played a special role in the field of monument protection: until its restoration in 1970, the National Monument Inspectorate and its successor organizations have operated here until recently. The building has now been sold by the Hungarian state, so it will be given a new function in the future. However, this is no stranger to it: during its long history, it had many different owners who used the palace built in the 18th century differently.

The western side of the Buda Castle has been loud from truck noise in recent years, as the former Royal Riding Hall and the Royal Guard building have been rebuilt as part of the National Hauszmann Program. These beautiful buildings have been completed before, and more recently they have been working on the Csikós Court that surrounds them, which was finally opened to the public in mid-September. We invite the Reader for a short journey, during which we will pass through the court, and the end of our journey will be the also rebuilt, charming Stöckl Stairs.

Babits Mihály Promenade is one of the most romantic streets in Budapest. It runs along the castle wall of Buda, and although the tourist traffic is huge nearby, only a few are walking in this relatively hidden area. Yet it was created in the 1930s precisely because it opened up a magical panorama of the entire city, and it was hoped it would attract foreign visitors like sugar.

The Hungarian National Bank was established in 1924, and the institution's well-known building in Szabadság Square was actually handed over in 1905 as the headquarters of the Austro-Hungarian Bank in Budapest. The economic flourishing of the period of dualism is also reflected in the prestigious building designed by Ignác Alpár, which will hopefully be brought to the fore by the reconstruction that will begin soon. During the renovation of the monument, the original conditions will be restored in the interior and the whole building will be modernised and made energy-efficient.

The Szilágyi Dezső Square Reformed Church was taken over by the faithful on Palm Sunday of 1896, so this year it celebrated the 125th anniversary of its construction. The Parish kept track of the anniversary and two years ago began the interior renovation of the building, which was largely completed in March. Due to the month of architecture - and as the Reformation Day approaches - Pestbuda was able to see what the new interior became like.

Recently, the name of Alajos Hauszmann has been in the public consciousness, mainly as an architect of the Royal Palace, due to the constructions in the castle, but many other works are also connected to his name in Budapest. One of his most notable and most successful works is the building of the Curia in the Kossuth Square, which was handed over just 125 years ago, on 20 October 1896, in a ceremonial setting, as part of the millennium celebrations.

The Church of Our Lady of Hungary in Rezső Square, consecrated on 8 October 1931, became the second largest church in the capital after St. Stephen's Basilica. Although it has since been toppled from this eminent place, it is still at the forefront to this day. However, not only is its size commanding authority, but also the long and tacit history of its construction.

One of the most famous Hungarian scientists is immortalised in many reliefs and busts in Budapest, but previously he only had one life-sized statue: it was erected in 2016 in Pest, in front of the central building of the University named after him. Now a new statue has been placed in the Gesztenyés Garden in the 12th District of Buda, and the place is closely connected to him as well: his most famous invention, the torsion pendulum was produced in the predecessor of the Hungarian Optical Works operating next door.

September 29 is the feast of St. Michael the Archangel, the most popular, most often depicted angel. He was elected patron of several churches in Budapest, the youngest of which was the parish church of Albertfalva, consecrated in 1941. The modern, yet traditionally Hungarian building has recently been expanded with a new community house.

One of the largest and most modern congress and conference centres in Central Europe has been established in Budapest, on the territory of Hungexpo.

In 1930, Budapest hosted the 12th International Congress of Architects, which was attended by architects from all over the world. As an accompanying event to the triennial event, a large-scale architectural design exhibition was held in Budapest, which was open to the public between the 6th and 16th of September 1930.

The 52nd International Eucharistic Congress is taking place in Budapest these days, which one of the largest events in the Catholic Church. It is always a great honour for the city to host the event, and Budapest is lucky enough to host it for the second time. For the first time, in 1938, the organisers expressed their gratitude to the Vatican for the opportunity by building the main altar of St Peter's Basilica in Heroes' Square.

Eighty-five years ago, in 1936 the Vienna Gate of the Buda Castle was rebuilt. The plan had already been conceived six years earlier, but because of the economic crisis the financial backing could only be secured for that time. The occasion for the construction was the two hundred and fiftieth anniversary of the recapture of Buda, which was on 2 September 1686.

In the shadow of the Millennium Monument, another work is hidden in the Heroes' Square. The Memorial Stone of Heroes symbolises a mass grave, originally erected in 1929, in memory of the soldiers of the First World War resting in anonymous graves, but it was not mourning that was its primary message, but mobilisation against the changing millennial boundaries. The memorial stone was demolished in 1951 but re-erected in the spring of 1956 and then in 2001, in a different form and with new messages.

The square in front of the Parliament has been called Kossuth Square since 1927, since the statue of the great statesman was inaugurated that year. The designation of its exact location provoked lengthy debates, and the finished work was tentatively erected at several points of the square by the time it reached its final location.

Egy külföldi turista talán el sem hiszi, hogy a Gellért-hegyet nem emberi kéz alkotta. A város közepén magasodva lenyűgöző kilátást kínál, és így kézenfekvő lehet a gondolat, hogy idegenforgalmi céllal építettük. Pedig a természet ajándékáról van szó, és a kilátást nemcsak a gyönyörködtetésre, hanem hadászati célokra is fel lehetett használni. Ez indokolta egy erődítmény építését a hegytetőre, melyet Citadellának neveztek el. Az építmény a Várkapitányság révén teljesen újjászületik, a jelenleg zajló munkálatokat most alkalmunk nyílt megtekinteni.
