Hi all!


I'm Drainville from Hungary, Budapest, and this is my first thread here.



In this thread, I'll present some photos shot by myself, about Budapest. There are many nice and not so nice places in this city that people don't know. So, here comes the images of Budapest, with some typical tourist ones and many unknown ones.





Here are the first pics:




















Also, feel free to ask anything!

Looking forward to more pics. I was last in Budapest in 1978 and I must say I preferred Pest to Buda. Loved the avenues and boulevards.

Welcome to the forum!

A few more...





It's a primary school in autumn sunshine.





Simply a street scene near a tram stop.





Signs of many decades on a street. Fifty years ago there was a tram going in this street.





The two most busy tram lines of Budapest - 4 and 6.





December can be rough!





Lutheran temple. Only 3-4% of the country are lutherans.

Four shots for the next post - a gate and its surroundings





This is a very nice gate at Wekerletelep. This is not far from the city center, and it's near way to the airport.





The same gate from the nearby park.





Residential building right from this gate.





Newspaper kiosk inside the small tunnel of the gate.

A few shots for today -






A peaceful quarter in wintertime.





Building in the neighbourhood of a construction site. You can see a lot of sites like this in inner districts these days.





Road near Deák square.





Modern residential building in a suburb.





Street scene in a bus top next to Danube river.

Here comes five shots, all of them from outer districts:






Look at this house! Doesn't it remind you of an artist?






Painting old buildings to bright colors is very common in a few outer districts. I think it's not too nice!






Bricks, rain, Ford Escort - a very little bit of England.






Housing estate called Újpalota.





A street made of yellow stones. There are just very few streets like this. When it rains or snows, it can get dangerously slippery.

Today's pics:





Street next to Eastern Railway Station. Early march can be really grey.





Road next to Danube.





Lutheran temple (a photo from another angle).





Nice autumn scene.





Diesel locomotive in Southern Railway Station. Normally they aren't allowed in the main railway stations of Budapest, but due to a rail reconstruction somewhere else, they are allowed this summer. They make a bunch of noise, but they look lovely.





Typical suburb tavern with a small garden. It's near to the airport, however, I've never seen tourists around.
