"Liberty Mountain is located on the Buda side of Budapest, Hungary. It is named after the sculpture of the Statue of Liberty on the top of the mountain. In addition to the sculpture on the top of the mountain, there is a castle on the mountain. Unfortunately, it seems that it has not been opened to the public for a long time.

From the Elizabeth Bridge to the Buda side, you can see that there are steps winding directly up the mountain, and there is a sculpture of Bishop Regate on the way. The whole journey takes about 30 minutes. If you are in a hurry, you can also take the bus to the middle of the mountain and walk for about 10 minutes to the top of the mountain.

"The Buda Tower is at the corner of the castle. The tower can overlook the castle (you can see the Fisherman's Bastion, the church), the river and the beautiful scenery of the two banks (you can see the Parliament). You must be mentally prepared that the tower is very high, and climbing the tower is a bit tired. You can climb the tower for free if you have a Budapest Card."
