Finally… some photos from Budapest

I promised some photos from Budapest. Here they are.

I start off with my favorite pic.

Budapest - just before sunset. My favorite picture.

It was pretty cold. I think I alreday mentioned this (that’s how I got a cold…). But we did get some lovely sunshine and I couldn’t get enough of taking pictures at night. Budapest lights up by night.

Matthias Church in the Castle district

We stayed in the Castle district, so most photo opportunities from there…

The best view over the Chain Bridge and St Stephen’s Basilica was from where the funicular stopped next to the Royal Palace.

And this is what St Stephen’s Basilica looks like in daylight. The lift up the tower was unfortunately out of order, so we didn’t go up. At this point we were frozen and craving hot chocolate.

And this is what St Stephen’s Basilica looks like inside. It is a pretty impressive cathedral.

The Parliament. We saw it the first day in the rain and had to come back for some sunny pictures.

The Parliament in Pest

I liked Old Buda, too.

This is the town hall in Old Buda. Old Buda or Obuda, is part of the city of Budapest which consists of Buda, Pest and Obuda.

And of course, no visit to Hungary without getting some paprika.

And a last picture for today. I can just hear the 2 dolls in the middle (red and blue dress) gossiping about all the other dolls.

Gossiping...

Hope you enjoyed these photos.

Happy Friday!
