The 2 days I spent around Budapest were really awesome. The area around the river is super cool and looks amazing at night, when everything is lit up.
Upon first arriving, I got a great laugh from the number for the taxis. 666 all around.
From here, I wandered around aimlessly and wound up at this cool-looking building.
It turned out to be the Hungarian parliament building. Great style, Hungary.
Along the river the next day, I saw this really interesting memorial. I didn’t know what it was at first but read some information further down that it’s a tribute to people who were rounded up, made to stand at the river, and shot, so they’d fall in and drown, by the Arrow Cross militia/fascist government during WW2. They’re bronzed pairs of shoes to remember the people who took their last breaths standing there. Intense.
The areas along the Danube, as it runs through the city, are really beautiful. I need to get back to Hungary and see more of the country–more of Budapest, too.
Back in the driver’s seat and onto new places.This entry was posted in Budapest, Europe, Hungary
