Budapest Sightseeing

On the second day in Budapest, we had a chance to do the sightseeing with a local guide. Budapest divided into two parts: Buda and Pest which divided by the Danube River. Pest lies on the flat terrain of the Great Plain while Buda is rather hilly.

Firstly we went to the Hero Square again. It’s called Hősök tere in Hungarian. The place looks really different without the National Gallop and it made the square became so photogenic:)

The central site of the hero's square, is the Millennium Memorial with statues of the leaders of the seven tribes that founded Hungary in the 9th century and other outstanding figures of Hungarian history.

And at the back of Millennium Memorial there are two parts, each with seven statues representing great figures of Hungarian history.

After that we went to the Parliament House, a very beautiful building and our local tour guide said that it is the biggest building in Budapest and also the most expensive one. Too bad we didn’t have the time to get in.

Just beside the parliament building, there is a Kossuth Memorial, which is an imposing statue of former Hungarian Regent-President Lajos Kossuth.

Than the local guide took us to the famous designers street called Andrassy Utca.

And look there’s a giant sign of Samsung at the end of Andrassy Utca :)

Beside the shops, the road also has a beautiful Opera house.

Than we went to the best place in Budapest I might say; the Budapest castle complex. As I love the place so much, I will write the full review of it on my next post.

It was lunch time already, we had our lunch in a Taiwan resto.
