Buda and Pest!

July 14, 2012

Budapest, the capital of Hungary was a very beautiful city. After having paid a visit to Ducati Full Gas in Budapest I decided to explore more of the city. Here is it in photographs.

Public transport system is all sorted, even though the tracks are always an hazard to the two wheelers:

 

The Heroe’s Square that was built in the 1900, when Hungary was still a part of the Austrian kingdom

 

Man with a Snake the symbol of War

  • The female statue of Peace

 

This was perhaps a World War II gunner which I found along with it.

I tried out some archery as well:

Aerial view of Budapest:

The Hungarian National Gallery, was established in 1957 as the national art museum. It is located in Buda Castle in Budapest, Hungary. The collection, which can be found in the A, B, C and D buildings of Buda Castle, includes nearly a hundred thousand artefacts dating from the early mediaeval times until the present day. The Hungarian National Gallery is the largest collection of Hungarian arts with one hundred thousand artefacts, from the settlement of the Magyars until the present day.

It also featured some of the most marvelous sculptures I had ever seen

Fisherman’s Bastion,

The Halászbástya or Fisherman’s Bastion is a terrace in neo-Gothic and neo-Romanesque style situated on the Buda bank of the Danube, on the Castle hill in Budapest, around Matthias Church. It was designed and built between 1895 and 1902 on the plans of Frigyes Schulek. Between 1947–48, the son of Frigyes Schulek, János Schulek, conducted the other restoration project after its near destruction during World War II.

From the towers and the terrace a panoramic view exists of Danube, Margaret Island, Pest to the east and the Gellért Hill.

Its seven towers represent the seven Magyar tribes that settled in the Carpathian Basin in 896.

The Bastion takes its name from the guild of fishermen that was responsible for defending this stretch of the city walls in the Middle Ages. It is a viewing terrace, with many stairs and walking paths.
