Budapest, Hungary

We ended our journey on a high note in Budapest. An incredibly beautiful city with amazing views, history, museums, shopping, art and dining et cetera, et cetera I could go on forever.

View of the Parliament building across the river from our hotel (which is obviously a Hilton) in Pest. You can see some of the “ruins” of the original structure on the left side of the building. The right side of the building is new construction.
This is an example of an artsy photo of the sun setting with a cool statue in it that I don’t remember many details about. It’s one of my favorite kind of photos.
Every sunset on our trip was more beautiful than the night before. So that made this particular sunset – on the penultimate night of our European adventure – the most beautiful of all. Long ago Buda and Pest were separate cities split apart by the Danube River. This photo was taken from the Pest side of the river overlooking Buda and the magnificent Hungarian Parliament Building.
If you look closely you can see Mark in his green shirt towards the entrance of the cathedral. Our hotel was attached to this ornate building – the first ever hotel built on a world UNESCO site. Also home of an amazinggg happy hour on the Hilton Honors floor.
This is another view of the cathedral. On our last night in Budapest there was a concert held in the plaza where everyone goes to take pictures of the Parliament building across the street.  The Hungarian pianist Gergely Boganyi brought out his spaceship shaped piano and was accompanied by a booming thunderstorm. It was epic.
