Budapest sights

Because 3 of my best friends live in Budapest, once in a while I have the chance to visit our capital. This was the first time I brought my Nikon and took amazing shots. Can’t wait go back! 🙂

The Hungarian capital, Budapest has one fifth of the population. It used to be occupied be the Celtic people and then by the Romans. Hungarian only came in the 9th century. It hasn’t always been the capital, because kings spent most of their times in Visegrád and they transferred to Budapest only in the 15th century and after that it became a Renaissance town. River Danube divided the two parts, Buda and Pest and they were united in 1873. Although Budapest has been through a lot (it was first destroyed by the Turks and the Tartars, then the world wars came), it always managed to renew itself and become the marvelous metropolis it is today.

Budapest is the ultimate tourist city with endless options to visit. Here are the ones I recommend of them:
Buda Castle
Vajdahunyad Castle
Parliament
Fisherman’s Bastion
Mathias Church
Dohány Street Synagogue
Heroes Square
Opera House
VigadĂł
Gellért Hill
Margaret Island
Hungarian National Museum
