Hello guys!
I talked about that I would like to travel more in my previous post, so here is my first trip ever since. I was enjoying the weekend with my mom in Budapest, Hungary. I always thought that Hungary is a small poor country and I've actually never wanted to go there. I saw this excursion online and it really intrigued me, so we bought it and we were ready to go. We were traveling by bus, but it's not really far away from the Czech Republic, so we were there in a few hours.

We started our tour going to see the Gellért Hill, it is amazing view from there. You can see the whole Budapest and the Danube from it. There is also an amazing park called Jubileumi park. We took some pictures and we went to the Matthias Church. It's very beautiful building which you can tell from the pictures I took. We continued to the Castle Hill where you can find the Buda Castle or the Sándor Palace which is the official residence of the President of Hungary. And there is also a nice view of Budapest.
Our next stop was the Great Market Hall, which is the large building with a lots of food, clothes and souvenirs. Then we went to center where were more food stalls. It was also decorated with lanterns which looked really cool, especially at night.
Then we checked in at the hotel (Green Hotel btw), took some rest and then we went to explore Budapest at night.

Our second day started with a tour of the Széchenyi baths, it's a very old beautiful building and it is also the largest medicinal bath in Europe. We didn't go inside, because we prefer to go shopping but other people from our group went in. We also visited Heroes' Square, noted for its iconic statue complex featuring the Seven Chieftains of the Magyars and then we continued to the Vajdahunyad Castle. We went by subway (which is the second oldest subway in the world, unfortunately I don't have any photo of it) to the center and got some new pieces of clothing. 
Budapest is a beautiful city with lots of old buildings, castles, temples and rich history. This city reminds me a bit of Vienna and Prague, but retains its originality that you couldn't find anywhere else.

Have you ever been to Budapest?

Thank you for reading!
