Buda Castle, Budapest, Hungary (UNESCO)

Buda Castle was the home of the Hungarian kings. The first castle in this place was built in 1247-1265. The oldest parts of the present castle dates back to the 14th century.  It was almost completely destroyed in World War II and later reconstructed.
Buda Castle as part of the city of Budapest  was inscribed into the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1987.
This awesome postcard was sent by Edina (Apoletta) for a Postcrossing UNESCO Round Robin.
