Krisztinaváros ( ) is a neighbourhood in central Budapestmarker, situated just west of Castle Hillmarker, north of Tabánmarker. It is named after Princess Christine, daughter of Maria Theresa, who interceded for buildings to be erected in this area. The history of Krisztinaváros is inseparable from that of the neighboring old Tabánmarker, Naphegymarker and Gellérthegymarker.

The central features are Krisztina tér and the entrance to the Castle Hill tunnel. It is also home to the Tabán Cinema [146006], a small cinema that presents art films and documentaries. (Despite its name, this cinema belongs to Krisztinaváros, not Tabán.)
