Budapest 2

13/9/2016

This morning we enjoyed a lovely walk around Pest, well actually we got lost so instead of looking at the dead hand of the first King of Hungary at the St Stephen’s Basilica, named after him, we find cosy little courtyards, lots of old buildings that looked very important and great little beer gardens. The weather is hot and sunny so walking between the shade of the tall buildings is very pleasant and the good news is we did eventually find our way back.

The markets are our next stop to pick up some bits and pieces for a nice home cooked dinner tonight – no getting lost now we have our guide back with us.

The front of the markets with the hand painted tiled roof - where you can buy all kinds of food, clothes, knicknacks and lunch!

Langos - traditional Hungarian food usually served with sour cream and grated cheese - we just added a couple extras - mmmmm!

The weather changed rather abruptly with a sudden torrential downpour which seemed to last quite some time with us hiding out in a shoe shop. Thankfully it doesn’t stop us from getting to the baths, of which there are many to choose from although mainly in the Buda part.

The St Gellert Thermal Bath is wonderfully, luxurious and has different pools to try with various heat or cool temperatures with a sauna close to a cold plunge pool – invigorating!
