Around The City Of Budapest Oct 2008
The best way to get around and see all the sights was by Hop On Hop Off bus. The big red bus took us all around the city which commentary in many languages. We got on on the Pest side and travelled around. We stopped off at Jozsef Nador Square, the Jewish Synagogue, Madach Square, Erzsebet Square, Andrassy Street, Liszt Ferenc Square, Hungarian Parliment Building ( this building was spectacular ). On the Buda Side we stopped at Buda castle yet another fantastic old building. One of the last stops was Citadella from here you could see near the whole of the city. The views were magnificent. Here are a few random links about the history of Budapest and views of the city.
