From Vienna, we drove to Budapest. This is a place that I have wanted to go for a while and it didn’t disappoint. I think Budapest makes the list for one of the top places we’ve visited.
St. Stephen's Basilica
Dohány Street Synagogue
Castle Hill in the background
House of Terror! Sorry, they wouldn't let us take pictures inside. It was here where people were detained, tortured and killed during the Hungarian Revolution
Vajdahunyad Castle-Built in 1896 for the Millennial celebrations, this large complex houses 21 exact replicas of the most magnificent and historic buildings of Hungary
Views of the City from Fisherman's Bastion
The Hospital in the Rock.This hospital was used when Budapest was under siege from 1944-45 and in 1956. It was upgraded and extended to a nuclear bunker in the early '60s because of the Cold War. They just made it known to people in 2002. They wouldn't allow up to take photo's on the tour
From this location we walked down the hill and across the Chain Bridge
I LOVED the Lions at the beginnings of the bridge
Why they call is a chain bridge
This thing was delicious! Dough that was placed on a wooded rolling pin like thing, the set in a rotating oven, then covered in Cinnamon sugar...they had other options as well. They call them Kürtőskalács, if you are in Budapest, get one!
Such an amazing city!
