Budapest II

06 Sep

A few days ago we came back from vacation. It was very exciting. This time I was well prepared for very long walks we planed to do, I bought comfy sport shoes. So the first part of vacation we spent in Budapest and the second part in..stand by for my next post :yes:

This time we had more time and visited a few more places (that are must-see) in Budapest and also enjoyed walking on our well-known paths.

Margaret island is a 2.5 km long island mostly covered by landscape parks, and is a popular recreational area. Its medieval ruins are reminders of its importance in the Middle Ages as a religious center. There is also a big aqua park there, Japanese garden, small zoo,..

We walked trough the famous Andrássy Avenue which links Erzsébet Square with the City Park, and next to the park is Heroes' Square.

We couldn't miss the Gerbeaud confectionery, I heard so much about it (we will miss it next time ;)). They have delicious deserts but they are expensive like hell.
I added more pictures to my album FIXTHIS Budapest.

    My first visit to Budapest in 1990. resulted in a long walks, as well. Then I've found out how cheap taxi was back then :doh: On my next visit same year, I payed 50 forint – it was less than 2 DEM back then – for a 2 hours taxi drive around the city. Plus a driver had a solid knowledge of English to answer some of my questions 😀

    Quote from previous post : "I fell in love with Budapest and I can't wait to visit it again, plus we left some spots in our lists of things to see"I'm so happy that you've managed to visit Budapest again and that you had another chance to see all those places you've missed to visit last time :happy: Cookies look great :chef: 😀

    @Jill- do you like to swim?@Gyng- Yes I know that Mozart balls are expensive. In Vienna we bought at Sisi museum some special praline with marzipan 130g cost some 5 euros. I guess that not so expensive for them as they have higher standards than we East Europeans.

    That's way too much to give for sweets, no matter if they are very decadent. Better to spend that money on some concert or some CD. Yes I have both of them in mind, just don't know what to choose… question is if I will choose one of them at all… :awww:Originally posted by MirabelaTM:

    I think that is not expensive even for us, comparing with Miss Gyng's recent find.

    Well, as long as sweets cost up to 4 times their weight in dinars I'm ready to try them even if that means I would have to enter a candy shop and ask for 50g of them, and I did it few times 😀 …So I guess if pralines Mira has mentioned would've cost 4.5 euros I would buy them 😀 Kidding, I wouldn't let half an euro to stop me from trying some fancy pralines…
