Budapest: The City Looks Even More Beautiful At Night, Trust Me!

Budapest: The City Looks Even More Beautiful At Night, Trust Me! – Free tour in the morning brought us to the main attractions for just a few hours, but that was already enough as the city was walkable. As usual, night came in early during winter at about 4pm and that’s the awesome self-walking night tour came in. Budapest lighted up beautifully at night during Christmas period which has more Christmas sensation than London, Krakow, nor Warsaw!

Christmas Market brought out the happenings feeling with people holding mulled wine on one hand and walking around, some standing under the heater lamp. We were just wandering around, looking for cheap but but ended got scam into buying expensive beautiful-looking Christmas sweets. Damn.

Looking at kids skating on the ice ring, enjoyed 10 minutes of peace in St Stephen Basilica and draining the remaining feet energy walking 2KM along the great Andrassy Avenue to Heroes Square and checked out the Schzenyi Baths and Vajdahunyad Castle were just tiring yet fun way to explore and spend the night in Budapest. Great day in this beautiful Budapest!

Chain Bridge and Budapest Castle lighted up!  Chain Bridge looks a bit like a miniature version of Brooklyn Bridge from here!

Hungarian Science Academy!

Beautiful isn’t it? The glowing St Stephen Basilica.

Scam, don’t buy, it’s expensive!

Beautiful but I tell you it’s priced by weight and it’s heavy!

So down after eating these because we’ve got scammed at the market.

Roasted pork, siu-yok-lookalike.

Heroes Square!

This place claimed to be the largest ice rink in Europe, too bad I don’t get to skate on it.

Peep into Schzenyi Baths. Cool!

Vajdahunyad Castle, no idea what is this place but just visit it.

Yeah, statue sitting like a boss!
