Nice pics! I experienced that Budapest is a real "car" city, and you can basically get anywhere in the city by car. In other cities (like Prague) there is a car-free city centre, or a city centre which is hardly accessible by car.

Budapest doesn't really have a pronounced city center like many other cities (like Prague or Bratislava). Just blocks of buildings, it lacks a big square and things are spread out along the Danube river. The smallest ring road is over 4 km in diameter, which is quite large. Dense city blocks go out as far as 3 - 4 km from the river, after which most of the area turns to low-density residential detached houses with a commieblock flat concentration here and there.

yes, what we call downtown is pretty big, and it isn't centered around a main square as you say. basicly everything is considered downtown (or inner city to be precise) inside the Hungária ringroad, which is the bigger ringroad in Budapest. So there isn't an area just for offices, or just for shopping, etc.
What's the easiest way of doing a map showing my route, can someone help?
Überlandia looks nice, thanks for the pics! (funny name for a city too)

Use Google Maps and make a printscreen to paint or paint.net and then scrap it of the useless information (task bars, tool bars, side bars etc) and upload it

ok here's another one i did on a different route:

starting on the Pest side of Árpád bridge (Europe Tower)

Duna tower (you can call anything a "tower" in Budapest, lol)

i like this one, the new buildings of the Postal Service

nice angles

now on Hungária ringroad

most eclectic arhitechture on this road, you can find everything here from office to factory, commieblock to detached home, sportshall or 50's housing, its almost anarchistic, kind of funny, allthough these pics are not really showing all the types of buildings

over the railtracks

the funfair on the right, with the old, listed rollercoaster

M3 junction





nearing Thököly road





another office block i like, next to Stadiums

underpass beloww traintracks again

next to Népliget (People's park)

this block looks 2D, i love it

off Hungária now approaching M5 motorway

heading south east in Budapest



stopped to refuel, colorful DHL warehouse

onwards to M5

next to Wekerle estate on the left, an old, planned neighbourhood



southeast Bp

M5

bit of a gap here, I took M0 to the airport and turned back towards the city. i dont have pics cause i made some videos, i might upload them later if you're interested. here i'm coming back next to the airport towards town

now on the Airport road, a strange single lane, grade separated and controlled acces road connecting the edge of center with the airport, its ok exept when there's an accident





we go through old industrial areas

underpass

disused factories

approaching the terminus of metro line 3, now under reconstruction, that horrible orange plastic thing is now gone, it was a major fire hazard

new terminus, transport hub and shopping mall u/c here

onwards to the center, here through some woods

the road connects to Üllői út

another small gap, now going onto Lágymányosi bridge, the building is the Palace of Arts

Lágymányosi Bridge (lighting done by mirrors on the top reflecting the light coming from below)

now in Buda, heading north to the embankment looking back on Pest on the new office developments near the Palace of Arts and the National Theatre

lovely cladding

on the embankment, Petőfi bridge and Szabadság bridge Economic university bulding visible

polytechnic university buildings on the left (just a few of them, it's huge)

metro4 construction on the left (Gellért square), Citadell in the distance

Elizabeth bridge

looking over to Pest

Elizabeth and Chain bridges



parliament, and Pest waterfront

I like these white buildings wish there were more

looking up to Buda waterfront buildings

past Margit bridge

Margit island (north end) and Árpád bridge

water tower on Margit island

now next to Hajógyári island, and the HÉV tracks (suburban rail)

old factories, now in differnt use, we are now back in Óbuda

one of the entrance bridges to the island, this one's called K bridge

the Filatorigát legal wall

off the embankment, turning back to road 11



i wish all of our trains were like that

back in Csillaghegy

Csillaghegy HÉV stop

outskirts


it would be great to see some other cities, thanks for watching

Nice trip around Budapest RKC... In that photo in noticed something which might be quite dangerous for the drivers. I am talking about the exit on this motorway/avenue:

Because he thought it was a off ramp down to another road, which the road pictured would be too steep for...

Thanks for the Budapest pics, brings back memories of my trip there a couple of years back. Budapest has been well planned for transport in mind.

I should really take some pics of Melbourne, seeing as I'm on the roads a lot because of my job. What do you guys use to take the pics, obviously you don't hold the camera in your hands?

Thanks.

hi!
well, first lot was taken by my brother as i was driving, second lot i have to admit i did while driving, but you know its a digital camera, so you just hold it up and shoot, not really an artistic procedure anyway these pics are taken mostly on main roads with steadily flowing traffic, its not like you have to change gears all the time or something.
Please do post some pictures of Melbourne if you get the chance, I would love to see them!
cheers

Is it all right to post videos instead of pictures? The following two aren't mine, as I don't have a car yet, but I wanted to share them with you, guys.

Here's Sofia during the day:



That's Sofia nighttime:



And please mind the theme songs.

on Váci, these are the types of office blocks that get built, no highrises yet unfortunately, i guess they have to use up the space before they'll need to think vertical

other side

downtown, Izabella street

we turn right here to Király street

new type of trolley bus on Király street



corner of Király and the ringroad, the devil's cab in front



a nice church on the corner of Király-Nagymező

old trolleybus

sidestreet from Király, you have to know the small streets, to avoid traffic



nitty-gritty

we passed Blaha Lujza square, still in the back streets but basicly following the route of the ringroad





lots of buildings need refurbishing

nearly on the ringroad at Baross utca tramstop

thats our half finished old stadium

butt ugly area by the tracks, left is the mall, used to be a horseracing ground

arena plaza

traintracks to Keleti station on the right

the back of Keleti

back in Óbuda, this is the longest house in Hungary, it'S called "village-house" because there's about 3000 people living in that one house, 900 flats, the avarage population of a small village.

Vörösvári road

fire station, renovated commieblock, not renovated commieblock



Óbuda industrial estate
