Here is my second post about Budapest and, without doubt my favorite!!
We got up and decided to take the breakfast to a place that had seemed very cool, a patio with pink flowers in Japanese style. It’s called Vintage Garden, below I leave you a picture!
With the batteries (and bellies) well loaded, we set course for Buda. To
get there we decided to walk, crossing the bridge again, once on the
other side you have two options, walk on the slope or climb by cable car
(I think it cost 6 euros) to Buda Castle. We choose to walk up, if you are as intrepid as we can take the
«shortcut» (an improvised staircase on the slope of the slope), or you
can walk the marked path, although it will take you some more time.
For me the best of the castle were the views of Pest. It’s
a pretty impressive construction, but certainly that day (and the whole
trip) my heart stayed with the Fishermen’s Bastion. I think you don’t notice anything in the photos… haha. I loved its aesthetics, its colors, the views of the Parliament and the Danube. We
had a good time discovering the corners and taking pictures, we ate
there and then we walked down to the shore that is in front of the
Parliament. There we took some pictures and we continued walking, this time to see Parliament up close.
Once this took a subway to return to the Vörösmarty square, this time to go to the most famous patisserie in the city, Gerbaud. I ordered a coffee with cream and very good ice cream, and to share a plate of the most typical cakes of the establishment. My favorite without a doubt the Dobos cake.
With a full stomach (again haha) we took the subway again, to end our day in the Széchenyi Baths. We went already in the evening and, honestly, it’s something that I would not repeat. They
have nothing to do with a spa as we know it, this is nothing more than
pools with very hot water, with very few (or no) pressure jets, and
above it gave me the feeling that it was not a very hygienic place. The entrance costs about 18 euros, to which you must add the rent of the towel (about 3 euros) unless you take one from home. In
the water it is very hot, in fact they do not recommend being more than
twenty minutes in a row to soak, and outside at nightfall and in April
it is obviously cold. In my opinion I would invest that time in knowing some other typical
place, going into a museum or going shopping, but as always to taste the
And here our second day! In the post that I have left, I will tell you the few places we
visited on the morning of the third day and our express escape to
This was the day that we predicted more heat (although then it was not
so much), so I opted for this beautiful dress with floral print and shoulders in the air and my pom-pom sandals.
I hope you like the photos very much and the information is useful !!
Lots of kisses!!
