Buda

I finally got my Budapest photos uploaded to Flickr. Here are some from our first day in Buda (the older part of the city, on the western bank of the Danube):

The Fisherman's Bastion ... it looks like a fortification, but has never been anything other than decorative.


Further down the Fisherman's Bastion.


A view across the Danube to the Hungarian Parliament.


I loved the way the older building was reflected in the glass windows of the Hilton Hotel opposite.


The buildings in the Buda Castle district were amazing - soft colours, with loads of architectural detail.


I loved this window. Doesn't it look like a Romeo and Juliet balcony?

This side street was just round the corner from our hotel.
