"Budapest , Hungary" Budapest by F.Lade

Budapest Travel Guide: 7,773 reviews and 18,087 photos

Budapest is a city I have heard about since my childhood days , but never visited before. Me and my wife had a few days spare in the beginning of Desember 2002 , and 60 000 SAS bonus points to spend , so we decided for Christmas shopping in Budapest . We found Budapest an exciting experience . The former east Europe city , now described as central European , has a lot to offer tourists who like to explore new cities and peoples , and compared to other capitals in west Europa , it is not expencive there.

The mythological bird "TURUL" found outside the gate to Buda castle . According to mythos the story about The Magyars started with Turul , I will not try to tell it as I do not feel that I know enough about it , but it goes back to pegan times.

    I stumbled upon hero's square without knowing what it was, that's how organized we were. What a treat!
