For landmarks, there is a strange looking oval shaped stone that is located at a small park beside Clark Adam ter.

Walking through this district, one may be able to catch a glimpse of the remains of a Dominican monastery or some Turkish tombstones found at the northwestern corner as one walks along the castle walls. Architectural beauties can also be found in dozens here in Budapest as well as in all of this country.

There is the Spectacular Chain Bridge which not only looks spectacular but can also provide a visitor with a wonderful panoramic view of the beautiful city which becomes even more impressive at night. Among the many beautiful monuments found in the city include the Heroes' Square which was built in the late 1800's. On top of the spire stands the Archangel Gabriel surrounded by seven statues representing the ancient chiefs of the Magyar tribes who settled in the area in the past. The large open space serves as a memorial to the Hungarian War heroes and has become a wonderful attraction for tourists and local visitors.

Then there are several majestic churches that can dazzle your eyes as you go around Budapest. One of the most well known is the church of Saint Anne, which is also known to be the finest Baroque church in the whole of Budapest.

A work of a still unknown architect, this church graces the surrounding area with its imposing and graceful structure and is known for its strikingly original blue gilded pulpit that is unlike any other any visitor has seen.
