Travel : Budapest,Hungary Part 1

Budapest is the first Eastern European city I've been to.To be honest,I always had a doubt to go traveling to an eastern european city,but Budapest proved me wrong.

We had a really great time in Budapest despite the weather.As the trip was a memorable one,I'm sure we will travel to more eastern side in the future :)

A little fact of Budapest.

Budapest is the capital and the largest city of Hungary, a single city occupying both banks of the river Danube with the unification of Buda and Óbuda on the west bank, with Pest on the east bank.
Cited as one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, Budapest's extensive World Heritage Site includes the banks of the Danube.

Well,one and half day there was definitely not enough to explore the city,but I tell ya,Budapest is a city with its own uniqueness,its own kind of architecture,many of its historical buildings and its metro system which is believed to be the oldest in the world.

Well,let's explore Budapest from the pictures :)

Husband took a break at Fisherman's Bastion,a place worth a visit on the Buda side overlooking the Pest side.

Me at Fisherman's Bastion overlooking the unique parliament building on Pest side

The Hungarian Parliament.If only we had extra time,we would have taken a tour inside as it was a very amazing architecture from inside according to my husband who was in this city a couple of years ago

The famous Chain Bridge connecting Buda and Pest sides crossing the Danube river

I personally think that Budapest is all about the scenic view mainly because of the Danube River.I really enjoyed the view of it during our short trip
