It’s been four months since I was in Hungary, and I just realized I never posted anything about it!

What can I say about Budapest…it is an interesting juxtaposition between eastern and western Europe, a former glory of the Habsburg empire, Art Nouveau smashed up against communist style blocks, beautiful yet gritty, urban and somehow rural.

An interesting idea I had on my first day was that this city almost piggybacks on Vienna. I felt a very familiar easiness about Budapest, which surprised me since I thought the exact opposite before I arrived. The two cities share a very similar face, perhaps it’s that they both sit on the Danube, perhaps it goes back to their once joined roots as a piece of the Habsburg empire, maybe it’s the similarity in cuisine. Nonetheless, Budapest and Hungary for that matter, are simply breathtaking.
