SimFox' NOT China

China is a huge, varied, booming and extremely interesting country which I love deeply, but our world is so much larger! And in this thread I would love to share with you, good folk of Skyscrapercity, my shots of this world exChina, so to say.

I'll open with stunning, lovely and lively capital of Hungary.

- Budapest -

Budapest

Sure!

Budapest is full of Chinese! Both tourists (including those traveling on their own), like this bunch of Sichuan girls

«Budapest | they're comming» на Яндекс.Фотках

as well as those who actually bought Hungarian citizenship back in 1990s, mostly those who felt uncomfortable staying in HK after 1997.

kisksloz, thank you for attending visitors here!

Couple of more words about building in question. It's full official name is Church of Our Lady. And some additional info on a building and it's history could be found here

I could continue with couple of shots featuring the same church:


«Budapest | Mattias Church (Mátyás templom)» на Яндекс.Фотках

beside the church I saw unique (in my experience) feature - a model, accompanied with braille, allowing blind people to "see" the church with their hands:


«Budapest | Braille guide to Mattias Church (Mátyás templom) » на Яндекс.Фотках

and monument to


«Budapest | István I - 1st King of Hungary » на Яндекс.Фотках

located just beside Mattias church at Fisherman Bastion

lol @ the thread title. great pics as always.

Budapest is a truly a great city, so much of history and great architecture. no wonder whenever we have a Budapest banner, its rating is always so high.

Would you also be covering Prague? That is another amazing city I won't be tired of looking at.

Yep, although China is actually one country it is as a world on it's own, And differences between regions are often bigger then between European countries.

No haven't gotten o Prague so far... but may be this summer...

Yes it is a very beautiful and pleasant city, unfortunately quite a lot of it is in a very bad state, even in what one would expect to be a prime tourist locations:

above and below are the scenes right on the Dunube bank at the foot of Castle Hill next to Gellert.
