Budapest from my point of view
Budapest was never high on my bucket list of cities i wanted to visit. I always thought that it’s boring and ugly - I was so wrong. If it’s not on your bucket list, maybe you will change your mind after reading this and watching the photo’s. I spend seven days there. For my first visit this period was just enough to feel the atmosphere of the city. There are still many things I haven’t seen - but it’s a good excuse to come back to this amazing city. My first impression when I left the airport was that I’m back in Poland. Roads, streets and houses were looking pretty much the same. The Budapest name is actually two words Buda and Pest. It is situated on both sides of the river Danube. Connected by several bridges. Both sides of the city have some amazing places to visit. Most beautiful view for the city is from Gellert hill - specially after the sunset. Bridges and architecture is illuminated so after the sunset the views are simply amazing. Architecture is something that made for me the biggest impression. Parliament, Opera house, castle Vajdahunyad, Matthias church and you could go on and on with the list. Those are of course touristic places, but what’s so great in Budapest even banks or universities are located in buildings that are piece of art itself. Last but not least Budapest is full of Thermal baths. After a long day you can always relax there and again admire the architecture beauty of the buildings where they are situated. Because there is so much to see here, in most of the places are not so busy. I went in April so I don’t know how the rest of the year looks like. During my stay there the temperatures were around 20 degrees, with a lot of sun. For food lovers in April they organize Spring Festival with live music, local artists selling their products and food trucks. If you decide to visit Budapest, use one day your alarm and walk along the river in early morning just after the sunrise - the views are amazing. Hope you enjoy the photo’s.
