About the rich cultural life and attractions of Gotham City:
“There’s always plenty of fun kicking up in Gotham, from a surging theater scene to an indie-arts incubator in the paint-splattered lofts of Little Bohemia. The Gotham City Opera House and the Rosemont Theater are twin cornerstones of culture for the highbrow set, and are architectural draws even for those who don’t care about seeing the latest shows.” More
You must have noticed this glorious building, the “legendary Gotham Opera House“, at 0:21 in the video.

The term Budai Vár (Buda Castle) is used both for the entire Buda Castle District and for this palace as well, which is most often referred to as Budavári Palota in Hungarian (“Buda Castle Palace”), to make it more precise.

Now let’s fly with Turkish Airlines to Gotham City!
