Here are pictures from my trip to Prague, Vienna, Budapest. I traveled between them by train and saw very different sides to countries relatively so close together.

I have been to all three cities before and it was interesting traveling back to them, especially the ones i had visited during the winter. I tried to take these pictures in mini panoramas to try and get something a bit more than usual, but this has resulted in having to edit nearly every picture! i hope you like them and please comment or ask questions

First up a few bonus pics of flying over London

Prague​

My hotel was lovely but a bit impersonal

Old city hall i think, they were doing work on the tram ways so made this area seem a bit out of the loop compared to my last visit.

Powder tower which used to be a city gate and the municipal hall

These three cities are all far on top on my list of favourite cities. It's a pleasure to watch this thread, especially since you take great pictures and you give some comments to them. :cheers:

Prague​

Quite a few buildings have murals or motifs on them

The astronomical clock, i heard once someone say they waited 30 minutes for it to chime and it was only 1 o'clock!

Also a lot of Asian weddings going on around the city, always a couple on their own with no family or friends, not sure if it was photo shoots or just their honeymoon tradition?

These three cities have many similarities because of some shared history, but at the same time they all have a very distinct character.

Three gorgeous cities in one thread, can't go wrong! :cheers:
Thanks, totally agree on three gorgeous cities

nice and I love all three cities.
Thanks

Yes, the big 3 for me as well, and London is not too shabby either.....Great trip, good for you, and now for us. Thanx for sharing.:applause::applause:
Thanks

I'm particularly looking forward to Budapest. The more I see of it, The more intrigued I become......
Budapest is probably my favorite, but undoubtedly the most shabby and unrefined of all three.

I agree, i think Budapest makes sense of the differences between Prague and Vienna, maybe why its my favorite.

Prague​

Tourist central, the little windy lanes towards Charles bridge are packed with restaurants bars and shops, for a procession route it really is quite claustrophobic though very pretty. This junction was a bit of a nightmare with crowds

Prague​

Its surprising the number of little islands and mini peninsula's coming from the river, i suspect most are man made or heavily extended

P5193558 by Cardiff123, on Flickr

Its surprising how dirty the statues still are, but the ones that were cleaned seemed to have lost their charm, so i hope they stay blackened
