Hello Buda, Hello Pest

Budapest, Hungary

LITTLE PARIS OF MIDDLE EUROPE

I never knew Budapest use to be two cities, Buda and Pest. A fun fact for you if you didn’t already know! I had visited this beautiful city last week – full of beautiful architecture, breathtaking views, eye opening history and excellent wine. I was there for 4 days 3 nights and it wasn’t enough.

I stayed in the Pest area, just off Váci utca. It was in close proximity to the Vörösmarty Square, many restaurants, bars. It was a great location! I wish I had taken some photos at night but I was too mesmerised by it’s beauty. The city was clean and I had felt safe. I had met other travellers not only from the UK. It was just a great experience.

Here are some photos I had taken:

I would definitely go back and explore the city more especially in the summer. There’s a lot more to see! I would love to go to the Sziget Music Festival one day! Maybe next year. I would highly recommend you visiting Budapest sometime in your life if you haven’t done.

Have you been here before?

    OMG Budapest looks so neat and beautiful. I have been talking to my colleagues through online conference. They work in Budapest and they never told me that Buda and Pest were actually two different cities in the past.

    Wow! Great to know about BUDA and PEST. Though sounds strange because we also have a town here in our city that we called BUDA short for BUKIDNON and DAVAO.
