Parliament at sunset

 

Postcards from Budapest
Last December I spent a week in Budapest and I discovered one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, steeped in history and glowing with architectural gemsย nestled all along the Danube.ย Even in the freezing cold of the winter, it was a great pleasure to walk along the Danube banks and to admire the inspiring views across the river of what, originally, were two distinct towns, before bridge construction made an organic unit of this urban conglomerate. I was particularly fascinated by theย glorious beauty of the Parliament reflecting in the Danube at sunset time.

 

Shoes on the Danube riverbank



Another interesting site was the installation by artist Cantogay representing shoes on the riverbank of the Danube in remembrance of theย executions taking place during WW2 in the city and across Europe at the time.ย 





Goulash in Budapest

When in Budapest having a traditional goulash for dinner at candlelight is a must and a real delicacy. A special mention has to go to the local For Sale Pub, close by to the Liberty bridge, serving very delicious traditional Hungarian dishes in a characteristic ambience, also with live music.ย
