Pictures of Budapest

Budapest

This is where your computer might crash because mine what close (and it's a monster I've built myself).

After Prague, here is the second part of my eastern europe trip. Enjoy Budapest. One of my prefered city so far.

One of the most important stuff in Budapest is the Buda Castle. With a museum inside it and a nice view over the city.



































The Chains Bridge. Great bridge.

















The Margaret Bridge.



The Statue of the Queen Elizabeth with her bridge behind her.



And Saint Gellert





This is the Basilica, Saint Istvan:















The House of the Parliament











The monument of the Liberation from afar.



The Heros' Square with the monument for the millenium









The Palace of the arts. A museum next to the Heros' Square.



The Palace of Vajdahunyad

















The Kak's Chapel is a small church in front of the palace.



Still in front of the Palace, the Statue of the Anonymus.



The Train Station, Nyugati



And the Great Synagogue (europe biggest)



The Nemzeti Hotel, where I slept
















Some pictures of streets and buildings

Budapest is absolutely the most underrated capitol in Europe.
In fact, not many cities can compete with it when it comes
to architecture.
