The Walls of Buda Castle

This is a look over the walls and down onto the River and the Bridge nearest me.

This is a look along the walls downriver. This place is up there about 500-600 feet and it drops - straight off, almost.

From a crenellation: This is a close-up of the bricks, their large and unusual shapes, which date to ????

Here's one of the arrow-slits. Note the oak about 25 feet away, and you're looking down into its upper branches. I thought this pic'd help mark the steepness of this perch. How anybody ever took this place, I'll never know.
