On today’s Budapest photo, even our kid, a 22 m.o. toddler can join to spot the squares. She is learning shapes and we have been trying to identify the shapes around us. Today’s theme day is Squares. Am sure you can find it almost everywhere. Here you can find real squares in the city too.
In Budapest, there will be the re-launch of the Red Bull Air race on the Danube Banks which starts from 13:45 on 1st May 2014. You can watch the live performance in front of the Parliament. Go earlier to get a good spot.
One of my favourite Budapest places is the Central Market Hall (Nagy Vasarcsarnok in Hungarian). Several reasons: it is very central, worth while to visit with its heritage and beautiful architecture. To be honest, it doesn’t look like a ‘wet market’. It has very beautiful designs on its gate, the produce offered are very fresh. If you are visiting Budapest in Spring, the strawberries are really delicious. On the second floor, you can find Langos and eat it on the spot. Here’s another view of the iron grillings of the gate.
One of the proudest things in Budapest is their Tram 4-6 tramways public transportation. It is very efficient to bring you from part of the downtown to the other. All within 20 minutes if you begin from Oktogon (area as shown on this photo). Besides, it is considered a thematic sightseeing routes on tram no. 4-6. From Buda, Szell Kalman ter passing through Margit Bridge, make way on Grand Boulevard in Pest, returning to Buda side through Petofi Bridge. The only difference is Tram 4 ends at Fehervari ut, while Tram 6 ends at Moricz Zsigmond korter. The other way to sightsee can be done along the line of the Millennium Underground Railway which is now part of the UNESCO World Heritage. Click on to have a look.
For Avenues, the four avenues in Budapest are Andrassy ut, Rakoczi ut, Ulloi ut, and Vaci ut. Don’t confuse Vaci ut, with Vaci utca. Because, utca means ‘Street’. And Vaci ut is one of the busiest and widest avenues in Budapest. A few notable buildings are the Nyugati Railway Station, Lehel Market, Budapest Bank HQ, WestEnd City Center to name a few.
