Best for Culture - Expert review of Hungarian National Gallery
It’s best to dip in and out of the National Gallery – it’s simply too big a feast to digest in a single sitting. Filling three wings of the Buda Castle Palace, the gallery’s collection spans 10 centuries of the country’s artistic output, starting with the medieval and pitching up just short of the present day. Among the highlights surviving from the early years are decorative marble features from King Matthias’s palace and some stunning late-Gothic winged altars. If you’re unfamiliar with the names of Hungarian masters, look out for religious canvases by F A Maulbertsch from the 18th century, depictions of the tough lives of rural peasants by Mihály Munkácsy from the 19th century, and enormous, vivid paintings by Tivadar Csontváry Kosztka from the early 20th century.
Entrance 1,000 forints (adults), 500 forints (EU citizens aged 6–26 and 62–70), free (disabled visitors, EU citizens over 70).
