I visited Budapest a month ago and I grew very fond of the city, of its incredible mirage. Every corner, every street, every house or windowpane has its wonderful individual pattern. One might have the impression that once one has seen a great deal of the city, one has grasped its secret, its uniqueness. But no. Budapest is one of those great cities that you have to discover in order to discover it, because no street looks like the other and there is no such thing as downtown. You would be impressed in order to find that Budapest has several downtowns.
One of the things I loved the most about Budapest is that you do not feel as a tourist. You do not feel as if you are in quest of sightseeings and you definitely do not elbow against other eagerless toursits like it might occur in other popular European capitals. Nobody is in no hurry. Neither the tourists, nor the inhabitants. Everybody is enjoying their day-to-day life and that is a lesson you will easily put into practice.
The Parliament is magnificent. And so are the Royal Palace, the Fisherman's Bastion and all the other main tourist attractions of the city. But if I were to visit it once again, I would surely start the journey with a most relaxating time in the Thermal Baths and have a long picnic in one of their marvellous parks.
The food is also extremely good and Hungarians are rather friendly. But if I were to recommend a great restaurant in Budapest that would be Paprika.It is close to the Szechenyi Bath and Spa Budapest.
Enjoy the pictures, but do not settle for images. Visit!
