After reading the reviews, your feeling is, that only the Roman Amphitheater is worth seeing in Óbuda. But Óbuda offers a lot of interesting and beautiful sights. Let's start with the Memorial of the Katyn Martyrs, which is just a few steps away from the Amphitheater and the tram stops right in front of it.
The majority of the attractions are in and around the Main Square (Fő tér) and the Holy Spirit Square ( Szentlélek tér).My advice to go by HEV5 to Szent Lélek Square station, and from there just walk. Of course, buses are going in the same direction; I just preferred the HEV from Batthyany Square station. When you get off maybe the first thing is the Peter and Paul's Catholic Church on Lajos Street, and also there is an impressive Synagogue as well. Continue your walk to Kalvin köz, where is the oldest Reformed Church of Budapest. On Main Square, there are two famous sculptures, The Waiters an Imre Varga sculpture and Szindbáb, a figure from a well known Krudy novel. Walking around this area, you find plenty of interesting museums, for example, the Victor Vasarely Museum, the Varga Imre Collection, the (Roman) Baths Museum and many more. Also, there is the Florian Square with Roman ruins, and many cozy little restaurants, where you can enjoy not only the meals but also the pleasant surroundings. My favorite is the Zöldkapu restaurant, and another is the Új Sipos Halászkert. There're so many things to see and enjoy, that one day isn't enough. You have to go back again, and again.

Visit not just the palaces and castles, but the old city itself worth a day to spend in. Walk the narrow streets, eat at a small restaurant. Feel like you are in the 1800's.

The title stands for one of Budapest's district, which is not a sight . However, it used to be the place where the Romans stationed in Pannonia province and features many Roman finds. As a local, my favorite is the amphitheatre, located at the intersection of Pacsirtamező utca and Nagyszombat utca.

Directly north of the castle district has an authentic flavor and some great Roman ruins (the amphitheater and Aquincum).

We had taken an Uber from Pest to get us to the Vasarely Museum when it was due to open. Arriving slightly early gave us an opportunity to stroll around the cobbled streets in the centre in which we later took a leisurely coffee after visiting the museum

Underwhelming area, visited to attend Christmas market as recommended. Greeted on arrival by a man exposing himself and urinating in the middle of the street. Graffiti everywhere, didn’t stay!

Visited on Sunday 8th October. We were on a guided tour and our tour guide took us for a walk around this very historic area of the city. Not to be missed, just make sure you allow yourself enough time to see everything there.

Just a few train stops on the outside of Budapest , i found this charming suburb, a quaint atmosphere, it has many beautiful buildings a museum and Christmas markets one of five best in Budapest recommended to me.
It is on the same suburban train line as Szentendre and tickets are free to Obuda with the Budapest 7 day travel ticket.
Aquincum is close by with Roman ruins.

We took a walk in Obuda on a Sunday morning and discovered some beautiful old buildings. The Vasalery Museum was worth visiting.
