The presents

These tulips are the present of the Netherlands (we call it Hollandia) to Hungary.

The flowers were planted on the Margit-island right close to the fountain which plays classical music.

Its really nice from hollands that they gave this present for us. Their tulips are famous and as you can see wonderful.

I just hope we gave some presents to Holland, too :) I will go to check….:)

Fairy tale or glass palaces?

Budapest looks like being in a fairy tale. Historical buildings, all the famous features were built in the late XIXth Century. In the local regulations they prohibit to build high buildings, no glass palaces, no skyscrapers. Are they nessecary in a metropolice? I dont think so, though when I was in Shanghai this summer I was totally impressed by its downtown. But in fact not the buildings make a city modern or oldfashioned. Rather the attitude of its leaders and its people.
I love my city with this romantic, historical view. Like in a tail….like in the sleeping beauty. But could you tell to the prince that we are waiting for him to wake up the princess with his kiss?
