My god... Your shots are terrific! Outstanding!

Each time I see photos of Eastern Europe, I got this impression! I think I should visit this place

Very beautiful city.
I've heard that this city doesn't develop. Not much money is being invested.
Is it true?

Budapest is looking really good these days. The Eastern European cities are finally turning the tide and are beginning to look really good!

Nice photos. I must definitely come back there someday.

@PeaceTo. Of course you should visit Eastern Europe. Maybe it's not so popular as Western Europe but also has a lot of beautiful and worth to visit places. Check it by your own.

Then I fell asleep in her arms.
That was happiness then.

I do think that money is being invested over there, although not to a very large scale. They were planning to replace some of their trams and they put a model of it beside the river for people to sit inside and get the feel. And also, many of their underground stations were refurbished I believe.

Budapest is receiving huge foreign direct investment. Budapest looks amazing by photos. BTW, Rachmaninov, don't you have more street photos? Can't wait to February to spend an Erasmus period.

@ kucksi

Feel free to post here the link, so everybody can see it...

I am sorry but my street shots do not live up to the title. Also, the streets were quite empty when I went. I hope you enjoy my series though!
