This is what a beautiful day in Budapest looks like…
Unfortunately, it lasted all of five minutes before turning gray and cloudy again. It looked like we wouldn’t get any escape at all from Holland weather even as far east as Hungary.
For the second morning of our trip, we went to the Castle District to see what that complex up the hill was all about. From afar it looked huge but it turned out to be quite manageable once we got there.
At the end of our little field trip, we decided to take the funicular down to water level but not before enjoying a view of the iconic Chain Bridge with our equally iconic palace-hotel at the end of it. What a sight.
