Buda + Pest: Budapest, Hungary

All five senses are surely delighted by the breathtaking atmosphere of Budapest, the “Queen of the Danube”. Its natural beauty, numerous historical spots and great architectural feats are just some of the few things that make one’s trip in this city extremely worthwhile and memorable. My photos do not justify the city’s beauty.

“Unique urban heritage sites including the Castle area with the Gellért Hill, the Parliament, the inner city with the Danube bridges and later Margaret Island, Andrássy Street with Heroes Square and the City Park were listed by UNESCO as World Heritage sites.”
