A beautiful day in Budapest, Hungary!

19 Comments

I was thrilled to visit the extraordinary city of Budapest which has a very interesting landscape of BUDA (hills) and PEST (flat land) separated by river Danube. River Danube flows in the heart of the city and the three outstanding bridges that connect the BUDA and PEST are Elizabeth, Freedom and Chain Bridge.

My visit to Budapest was short yet very sweet. Being unfamiliar with the city, we decided to take the hop on, hop off bus which took us around the prominent landmarks in the city. Our first stop was the Buda’s Castle District where I was amazed to see the phenomenal Matthias churchFisherman’s Bastion and architectural Buda’s Castle on the hill. One thing I enjoyed the most was walking down the emerald green hills by the castle all the way to the Chain bridge to board on to the river cruise. We had complimentary river cruise ride with our bus tour tickets which offered us the best panoramic view of the city at night. The city of Budapest is at its best during night when the Hungarian Parliament, Buda’s Castle and the bridges look very lustrous and reflect onto calm water of the river Danube to make it even more delightful.

One thing I missed during my visit to Budapest was to experience the grand Turkish bath in the Széchenyi thermal bath by the Hero’s square which is the largest thermal bath in Europe. It is still in my wish list and I hope to accomplish it in my next visit to the beautiful city.

  1. Beautiful pictures ! I love the night shots ! As for the Széchenyi thermal baths.. well, it’s a beautiful building, no doubt about that, but it’s filthy inside. People are not taking shower and it’s disgusting. Don’t haven’t missed much, don’t worry.

    • Thank you Darwin. Oh really? I thought it was a medicinal bath ,so assumed that it must be clean. Good to know that actually. Ya, I had such a wonderful time 🙂

      • yes, I went there and I didn’t have a nice experience. Yes, there are some medicinal baths as well as other type of pools (more than 20 different baths). but it’s so popular, than no one gives a shit about the showers or not walking with shoes in certain places.

  3. I love Budapest! Actually I love all of Hungary and the Hungarian towns in Slovakia and Romania where my husband’s family lived many years ago. Like you, I want to go back so badly. I had the most wonderful time there three years ago. Next time I go, I hope to also go to some Hungarian towns in Ukraine. There is always much more to see than there is time to see it! Thanks for posting the beautiful pictures and writing about your time there. I was so thrilled to read it and look at the pictures!
