Views of Budapest

Here are some views of Budapest. The scenery is absolutely breathtakingly beautiful, and these photos don’t do it justice at all, but here goes, starting with a trip up Gellért Hill:

Crossing Elizabeth Bridge to the Buda side you see this beautiful waterfall:

A statue half-way up the hill, looking out over Elizabeth Bridge:

At the top you find this lovely garden and statue which can be seen from miles around:

Huge statue, though i have no idea who it is or what it represents:

This hill is extremely high; from here you can see the three main bridges over the Danube:

You can also see Buda castle:

From the castle we had some lovely views, for example Chain Bridge:

Margaret Island, which is an absolutely beautiful and very peaceful place:

This is a cogwheel tram that took us up another hill, towards our hotel:

At the top of this hill is a phenomenal view. You’ll just have to take my word for it:

And look what else is up the hill – this ginormous great spike which you can see from all of Budapest:

Here is the spike seen just down the road from our hotel:

I became somewhat obsessed with the spike:

Our hotel room had a balcony with this view:
