After crossing the Chain Bridge onto the Buda side, you reach a square named after Adam Clark. He was the engineer who managed the bridge’s construction. There you will find the Buda Hill Funicular. This transportation up Castle Hill opened in 1870, was destroyed during WWII and reconstructed in 1986. It takes only about 90 seconds for the passenger car to lift you and 23 others about 167 feet. When you exit, you have this first glimpse of Buda Castle.
