1 Day in Budapest

Buda or Pest?

Split by the Danube, I stayed on the Pest side and explored the Buda side😊 I had one day there, and ended up walking 10.63 miles! I guess I’m used to walking a lot… my feet didn’t even hurt.

My favorite area in Budapest was Castle Hill District because it had small pedestrian-only streets, cute cafes, cobblestone, and a view of the city and river. Cute😍 And also this church (one of my favorite churches I’ve seen):

I liked Budapest (not more than Istanbul)… it was different than I thought it would be. It doesn’t seem very ‘old’. I guess they had to rebuild after bombings in WWII, and that has something to do with it. The streets are really, really wide – they all feel like Park Avenue to me (only much smaller buildings!) My favorite part was the patio Cafes they have everywhere. They have a lot of the wide streets closed off from cars, so in those instances, the street is full of tables from the restaurants (it was great weather when I was there, so everyone was outside at them).
