Budapest Castle to be renovated by 2014

Budapest Castle is set to be renovated, with the all important castle Bazaar to be completed by 2014. The castle Bazaar or Varbazar has been in a state of ruin for the past 30 years and been far too dangerous for the public to visit. But thanks to recent plans announced by the government, the project to restore this part of the city has been made a priority, with work scheduled to start this autumn. Once complete, the Bazaar will hold exhibitions, be home to art galleries and workshops, plus have a coffee shop, restaurant and a shop selling Hungarian products. The gardens in the area are also set to be updated with plans to restore natural beauty back to the promenade and make it one of the top attractions in the city once again. Budapest is just one of the fantastic locations you can see on our European river cruises 2012. Image Credit: Arian Zwegers
