BUDAPEST [1] - hkskyline's Euro 2007 Tour (Pest Cityscapes)

Hong Kong Forum Trip - BUDAPEST

Seems like an annual tradition that several of us from the Hong Kong forum get together in London and fly off somewhere. I happened to be in town for one of these trips in 2007 to Budapest.

1. Arriving in Budapest by rail ... although a short ride from the airport, I didn't expect how rustic Eastern Europe still is - Nyugati pályaudvar.




3. Hopefully more of this awaits.


4. The subways run deep underground. These trains look quite retro, and the doors get quite ruthless when they close with a loud bang. Keep your fingers away.


5. We started walking around the Pest side. Strangely, the streets were quiet.




7. The beautiful Parliament building sits next to the river.
























19. Some other monumental neighbours ...






22. I actually don't recall taking a tram while in Budapest.












28. Soon after we left the Parliament area, the streets got even more deserted. There didn't seem to be any street-level retail at all, which we thought was a bit strange considering this is the city centre.










33. I didn't mind so much about the serenity, though.

Nice pics! I see it was cloudy just like when I visited Budapest in June 2008. It looks like we have visited the same places in Budapest. And you have visited my city, Malmö too!
