Budapest Photo Diary

By Friday, March 27, 2015 ,


Hi Everyone, 
I thought today I should write about something which again is so close to my heart and I simply love doing and that is to Travel. 




“Wherever you go becomes a part of you somehow.”   Anita Desai

“But that's the glory of foreign travel, as far as I am concerned. I don't want to know what people are talking about. I can't think of anything that excites a greater sense of childlike wonder than to be in a country where you are ignorant of almost everything. Suddenly you are five years old again. You can't read anything, you have only the most rudimentary sense of how things work, you can't even reliably cross a street without endangering your life. Your whole existence becomes a series of interesting guesses.”  Bill Bryson, Neither Here nor There: Travels in Europe      

These quotes exactly describe how I feel about travelling. Travelling enriches you so much and you learn so much about different cultures, food and history. So today I am going to share with you guys glimpses of Budapest

Budapest is the capital and the largest city of Hungary and one of the largest cities in Central Europe. It is the country's principal political, cultural, commercial, industrial, and transportation centre. Cited as one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, Budapest's extensive World Heritage Site includes the banks of the Danube, the Buda Castle Quarter, Andrássy Avenue, Heroes' Square and the Millennium Underground Railway, the second-oldest metro line in the world. It has around 80 geothermal springs, the world's largest thermal water cave system, second largest synagogue, and third largest Parliament building. The city attracts about 4.4 million tourists a year, making it the 25th most popular city in the world, and the 6th in Europe, according to Euromonitor. Wikipedia.

  5. Absolutely beautiful. This is what I miss from Europe, the history and beautiful architecture. As much as I search, America do not have this. The East coast gives it a good go if it, and so does San Francisco, but boy do I miss old world Europe and her beautiful history. Thank you for sharing.
