Budapest

I arrived in Budspest on the train from Vienna.

Hungary uses it's own currency called forint

From the railway station i took subway train to Sofitel Budapest Chain Bridge hotel.

I got upgraded to a room with a view! ... What a view!!

The rest of the day I was walking around the area.

There was a market nearby, where I tried local food: fried cheese bread

Walking around

Next morning, brunch at Stika Gastropub

More walking around. This city is beautiful!

One of Budapest's many thermal baths is just a short walk from the hotel

Dinner at Comme Chez Soi Was fully booked for the weekend, but I managed to get a table!

Walking around the streets of Budapest...

Budapest metro, trams and buses are great way to get around the city! And Google Maps can map your commute with precision.

lunch at  Gettó Gulyás, followed by more waking around ...

Today I explore Buda side of the city. Brunch at Déryné

Walking around Buda side of the river ...
