There’s something about Budapest [Hungary]

Two years ago I was in Budapest, waiting for the sunset when it hit me that I really want to pursue travel photography. And for that moment, I owe this wonderful city some new posts on my blog.

As usual, when I write my impressions about a city I start with describing its panorama. In this case, I will not describe just one, but four. There are multiple points in Budapest from where you can see the skyline of the city. And I just can’t choose one, so I’m gonna present all of them.

The first one would be the Danube panorama. You can walk by the river and see the impressive Buda, with the Royal Palace, Fisherman’s Bastion and Matthias Church, and the beautiful architecture of Pesta.

The second point is, actually, the tourists’ favorite: the view from Buda Castle. It is so well know, that I will not waste your time by presenting it.

The third perspective is one of my favorite: the one from Gellert Hill. The climb up is so exhausting but in the same time is soooo rewarding. The hill offers you a birds eye view and it will just take your breath away. It is the only place from where you can see both panoramas of Buda and Pesta in the same time and all the city’s eight bridges. Just make sure that you have a bottle of water with you and some warm clothes, cause you’ll definetely need them.

And finally, the most underrated view: the one from St. Stephen’s cupola. It’s a confusing way up, but once you’re there you can enjoy a lovely panorama of Pesta.

For me, there’s a tie between the last two, but honestly, I can’t choose just one. They offer different points of view and you just can’t compare them.
