The royal castle hill of Buda and its streets, palaces and houses are recognised and proudly promoted contributors to the World Heritage List by the UNESCO. In the vicinity of the coronation Church of Our Lady also known as Mathias Church in the heart of medieval Buda can one find the Fortuna House whose story is closely related to the most important events of Hungary's history. The cellars and tunnels under the buildings were begun in the 12th century during the reign of King Béla III.

The original buildings were completed in the 14th century during the reign of King Charles Robert d'Anjou. In the past six hundred years through the quiet or stormy course of history the Fortuna House was used for many different purposes. The first book printed in Hungary was made here in the printing house of András Hess in 1443 and it was the first inn for military officers in 1777. In 1840 the Fortuna House changed for catering as a part of the then university. The present form of the buildings was created by 1901. The Second World War caused serious demage. The Fortuna Restaurant was opened in 1957 after thorough reconstructions.A message of history is conveyed by the arched gateway, the niched rooms on the groundfloor and the cellars carved into the rock.

We will arrive and return by bus to the Ramada Plaza Hotel.
