Tram 2 Budapest

The 2 tram in Budapest runs along the Danube on the Pest side of town. It is incredibly scenic, especially at night when the bridges and buildings are illuminated. National Geographic (Journeys of a Lifetime) rated it one of the top ten trolley rides in the world, and UNESCO designated the Danube river side a World Heritage Site. So sit back and enjoy the views from the tram route as we ride down a shoreline created for an empire.

All Souls Day Reflections

All Souls Day in Central Europe is a day to honor the memory of deceased family members.  It is a national holiday in Hungary. These pictures are from Farkasréti Cemetery up in the hills of Budapest on the “Buda side.”  It is the final resting place for Béla Bartók, George Solti, Zoltán Kodály, and many other accomplished Hungarians.

Hungarian Parliament

Afternoon shot of the Hungarian Parliament.  The area surrounding the Parliament has been completely renovated, and opened up for expansive shots like this.  The building has been scrubbed of decades of grime.  It is one of the largest and most spectacular parliaments in Europe.
