The Budapest Parliament Building located in the Pest side of Budapest, is the third largest Parliament building in the world. To photograph this building, simply head over to the Buda side of the Danube at sunrise or sunset. There is a long bank along the river where you can set up your tripod.
Széchenyi Chain Bridge was built in 1849 and at the time was an engineering marvel. The bridge spans 663 feet over the Danube river and was the largest of its time. Despite many larger bridges built today, none would have the character and beauty that the Széchenyi Chain Bridge has. Comprised of massive chain links and ornate towers, you could spend hours looking this bridge.
Streets on the Pest side of the city are surrounded by large stone buildings. The buildings have stood the test of time and have seen many changes in the city. If they only could tell their story.
GERLÓCZY Spiral Stair Case which climbs all the way up to the top of the hotel. I made many trips up and down the stair case. There is an elevator as well.
The food in Budapest is nothing but amazing. The GERLÓCZY Cafe had some amazing dishes and I found myself eating at the cafe, not only because it was convenient, but it was also really good.
Budapest's most famous ruin pub. One of the most interesting places I have been in a long time and I highly recommend adding this to one of your places to visity while in Budaphest. The pub is located in an old, ramshackle building. From the outside the building does not look like much. Once you are inside, your perspective begins to change.
The first floor of Szimpla Kert, there are rooms, each with it's own bar and tables outside. The walls are covered with graffiti and strange art. Each bar serves different drinks, but if you are really looking for something unique try the pálenka.
Enjoying a drink with some co-workers in Budapest. I would have to say what I enjoyed most were the people in Budaphest. They are friendly and like to have a good time. I am on the far right. Kristina is in the middle and Michael on the far right.
Another of the many rooms in Szimpla Kert.
I will definitely miss Budapest. It has been one of the best adventures I have had in a long time. On my last night, I took this photo from the rooftop of a building. It was truly a memorable moment where I could reflect on the time I spent in such an amazing place with so many amazing people. Thanks to Whitepages, my employer for sending me on this trip and the awesome Whitepages team in Budapest.
