Hungarian Highlights - Part 1 (Budapest)

This will (hopefully) be the first of a series of pictures posted from this past summer's trip to Hungary. I'll do my best to keep my commentaries to a minimum and let the pictures do the talking.

Hungarian Parliament on the shore of the Danube.

The Opera House.

St. Stephen's Cathedral.

Soviet Army Memorial. This was the only site in the city where I didn't have to fight crowds for a photo. Understandably, the presence of this Cold War relic across from the Parliament is greatly resented and there is a push on to have it removed.

Vajdahunyad Castle.

Heroes Square.
