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….:)
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?
It seems my first daily photos will be about churches. Its not because I am so religious (I am even not baptised) but these temples are nice witnesses of our everydays. There are like 4 churches very close to my place I will show them one by one giving a short story connected with churches to each.
In 1998 was in Berlin. It was not my first time in Germany but first time in Berlin. Near to the railway station which is a modern area I saw a half-church. Actually a half-tower of a former church. With its gray ruined walls beside the shiny glass palaces it looked like a silent cry. It was the most shocking building I ever seen. Seeing a trunk church is like seeing an injured human body. But this little chapel I posted here is cute. Small and cute…just like my country:)

Though Budapest is not in the mediterranean area experiencing the very hot summers lately I start to think the climate is changing here. This is a church on the photo. I dont know what kind of church. Its white walls and a blue sky behind reminded me to Greece and the athompshere of those southern countries.
