Budapest in Pictures
Budapest has to be one of the most photogenic cities in the world. The beautiful architecture, quaint streets, windows decorated with bright flowers, neatly outlined car parks, yellow trams, elegant street lamps are just some of the things that make you want to applaud the Hungarian aesthetic sense.
River Danube separates Buda from Pest. Buda lies on the west side of the river and is the old, hilly part of the city. Pest is on the east side of Danube. It’s the livelier and the busier side, famous for its nightlife.
The city definitely has the most exquisite and ornate street lamps I have ever seen. No kidding.
The Hungarian Parliament is supposed to be the largest building in Hungary and the tallest building in Budapest. My camera zoom couldn’t do justice to its magnificence, so here’s a close up of the entrance.
The trams here are a quick and inexpensive mode of transportation and are popular with the locals.
The cobbled streets and quaint lanes make it an ideal city to explore on foot.
If all that walking tires you out… you can always catch your breath on a nearby bench.
And if you are lucky, a local kid might decide to put up a show while you take a break.
It’s not just the city you will fall in love with, you might just fall in love in the city.
Budapest is a delightful and a charming city. Hungarian Forint is the local currency and is quite cheap. The city is a great option for those who’d like to explore Europe on a shoe-string budget.
