Budapest In Pictures

What do I love about Budapest? The melding of the old and new: the centuries-old Citadel where, nearby, I find ultra contemporary cafes and galleries. How the city makes use of dilapidated buildings, turning them into energetic ruin bars, as they're called. Car-free Margaret island that sits in the middle of the Danube. The vibrant design scene where even coffee shops and cafes display an ever-changing array of photography, paintings and bags produced by local artists. This short YouTube video slideshow provides a window into what I most loved about Budapest.

I loved the photo taken from the water. It looks so much like Stockholm. Thanks for sharing. I would love to visit Budapest.

Hi Brette, I'm glad I planned to stay in Budapest for a week. Originally I was intending to do other parts of Hungary but Budapest had so much to offer.
