Budapest – first few hours

Magnificent view of the Hungarian Parliament building Building Budapest

So we’re here in Budapest, although a short flight delay and big bus queues meant it was almost 2pm by the time we were out exploring. However even in just a few hours this wonderful and majestic city has made an impression.

Our home is in Pest, close to the Jewish quarter, across the wide Danube from beautiful Buda. So many wonderful vistas, so many majestic buildings. We’ve already taken in many sights, already walked miles. Then, as we left Buda and walked back across the Chain Bridge, darkness started to fall and floodlights lit the buildings on both sides of the river. Beautiful views in every direction.

And now we’re in our first ruin bar. You don’t know what a ruin bar is? We’ll tell you later.
