BUDAPEST, HUNGARY

Our last trip was to Budapest, the heart of Hungary. Budapest is not only impressively and unique because of all these beautiful buildings and sights but also varied. We can be lucky that this city was largely spared from the war because it offers a multicultural heritage for the tourists, as evidenced by Roman buildings and ruins, Serbian synagogues and churches and Turkish thermal baths. So perfect for photo-freaks like us who try to take the best photo everywhere (literally laying on the ground to get the best ankle)!

Országház / Parliament of Budapest

The Parliament Building is richly decorated down to the smallest detail and is the largest public building in Hungary with its 17,745 sqm. It is incredibly impressive and believe us we were impressed and speechless every time leaving the metro station (Kossuth tér). So it is an absolute must visiting the Parliament Building but hand on heart – you can hardly overlook it.

Halászbástya / Fisherman’s Bastion

Another place of interest is the Fisherman’s Bastion in the Buda Castle district. The panorama terraces offer a unique view of Budapest. You have a great perspective of the Danube and the Parliament Building. The sweet oriental towers inspired us and we can only recommend it.

The Buda Castle district, however, is not just the Fisherman’s Bastion, but also the Castle Palace, the Szent György Square and the historic residential district.

In addition to all the sights like Heroes’ Square, Citadel or St. Stephen’s Basilica the city doesn’t only offer a lot of attractive and interesting “historical places” also the Danube, the street artists, the city center and the old tram make the city what it is now.

We had a few wonderful days in this city and could still report about it. But before we steal your ideas don’t wait too long and go get into a car, in the bus or in the plane and discover the city. It’s worth it! See for yourself.
