Budapest

Wow

storm 22 °C

After a very long day of driving (breakfast in Czech Republic, lunch in Bratislava we were on our way to Hungary for dinner). Budapest has been one of our favourite destinations. We arrived and went straight to Gellet hill for an amazing view of the city. Then after a quick change we had a massive thunderstorm but our dinner cruise along the Danube certainly impressed. The view of the Hungarian parliament all lit up was magical. The food was ok as well.
We were up early for a city tour and we saw an amazing church overlooking the parliament (I think it was st mathias) and then on to Heros' square.
After we got off the bus we went and saw the shoes on the Danube which represent the Jewish people who were shot into the Danube in 1944-45
We then went to the parliament and saw the guards do some amazing presentation.
We were hoping to fit in a visit to house of terror but due to the thunderstorms a lot of buildings still didn't have power restored and unfortunately that was one of them.
So alas we had to settle for some shopping.
