Buda Buda Budapest

May 27, 2019

Hellooo lovely people of the internet!

I am still here I promise, I have just had a lot on and a holiday and just life, and wanted to take a little break from blogging! I am feeling refreshed! 

So jumping straight in, I have not long got back from a week in Budapest Hungary with my cousin Morgan, and it was honestly one of the best weeks of my life! We ate a lot, drank a lot, and explored a lot. I did think I’ve never experienced before and as lame as it sounds, I can honestly say I was living my absolute best life, so of course I’m going to share that with you! I’m going to break this down into three posts, this one, the first will be about the sites to see, and what we explored!

Budapest is a remarkable city, benefits being that it is super cheap, and a lot of the sites are free to see. It is a city known for its fantastic architecture and unique culture. The sites we explored, included the parliament building which resembles something out of Harry Potter, the Fishermans Bastion which reminded me of the Shrek castle, St Stephens Basillica, Heroes Square and finally the Budapest castle. All of these are free to visit and walk around, and you can easily spend a few hours exploring!

Heroes Square- this represents all of th famous kings of Budapest. They do not have a king any more, but this monument was remarkable! 

Fishermans Bastion, the view from this was incredible. This place reminded me alot of Lord Farquads castle in Shrek, with its modern brick and fairytale structure, every corner of this building was stunning and it was breath taking to indulge in. 

St Stephens Basillica, this was quite small but the panoramic view was insane. It’s definitely worth doing but doesn’t take long at all. 

By far one of the most beautiful buildings i have ever seen- Budapest Parliment! In fact this whole square has buildings that could be considered artwork. 

This was the view from the Budapest Castle- i don’t actually have a picture of the castle, but the view itself was a dream… We also rode the funicular down to the bottom of the caste, an experience but not something necessary. 

I loved learning about the history of these buildings, and it was quite interesting to learn that they aren’t actually that old in comparison to some of the worlds most popular historical sites.

Budapest is a city which needs investment for more than a few days, there is so much beautiful scenery to visit, panoramic views to soak up and more importantly, history to throw yourself into. We were there for a week and it was the perfect amount of time!

Next up I’ll be diving into the baths of Budapest a little more! Have you ever visited Budapest?

Lots of love,

    Wow, sounds like you & Morgan had an amazing time! You have some fab photos. Getting to ride on a funicular to the bottom of the castle must have been cool, not sure my stomach could handle the height though! I’ve never been but I’d love to go, the views & history are fascinating, so I can see why you think it needs more than a few days there to take it all in. xx
