If you love chocolate, great homemade foods, wines, palinkas (the Hungarian brandy) and other delicacies, as well as jazz, funky, soul and other concerts, this is an excellent place to enjoy your Budapest stay in the romantic and majestic Buda Castle atop the Castle Hill on the hilly Buda side of Budapest.
Sweet Days is a great event, a delicious international meeting place for chocolatiers, bakers and confectioners, and Buda Castle is a terrific venue. (Sarah Jane Evans, Academy of Chocolate, MW)
