My cheapity ticket to Greece required a 12 hour layover in Budapest. So my friend and I wandered around the city and were completely smitten! It feels a lot like Paris.

  1. I was in Budapest last year and I was thought that too, I guess the Danube is a little like the Seine, running through the middle. I didn’t know what to expect from Budapest so I was really surprised by it’s raw romance and beauty. I loved how a lot of the buildings were in various states of disrepair and there was quite a lot of graffiti.

  2. My brother lived there for two years and I’d never even considered a trip there until I started seeing his photos, I’ve been smitten ever since. Not your usual touristy destination.

  3. I always think of the book Prague whenever someone mentions Budapest. So glad you guys were able to venture out and explore!

  4. I’ve heard great things about that city – it’s definitely on the list… Good to know you’re smitten – one more reason to visit! Off to see what other goodies you posted on Flickr.
