Beautiful Budapest, Hungary

My hotel, Art’otel, was on the river across from the Parliament building which provided a marvelous view at night with the lights and the river traffic.  We spent two nights together here just enjoying walking the city streets.  We did the hop on/hop off bus tour on foot because it’s better for taking photos, although it did take a bit longer.  Cafes here are just the best, always with great people watching locations and the food is excellent.

One night we walked up the steps to St Matthews Church at sunset and it was so worth the climb.  The area up there is so much quieter than down on river level and the view is to die for. (I know, never end a sentence with a preposition.)

Parliament is under construction on the street side and it is a bit confusing finding your way to the ticket office and into the building but don’t let that stop you.  Take some time and head up to the zoo and Palace where you can take a break from the busy streets and traffic. If you are taking a river cruise to and or from Budapest, be sure to take enough time in the city itself to see everything it has to offer.
