Hungary, Budapest

Budapest, the capital of Hungary and considered by many to be the "Paris of the East", is one of the most culturally important metropolises in Eastern Europe and home to numerous UNESCO World Heritage Sites.Unfortunately, we had only one day to explore the city,so we took tickets for the open-air double decker bus and were able to see almost all famous place. İ'm going to tell you about my favorite ones. 
Our first stop was spectacular Castle Hill, i think it is one of the most beautiful places in Budapest.Towering over the Danube, Castle Hill contains many of Budapest's most important medieval monuments and museums.













The Parliament building, a magnificent example of Neo-Gothic architecture (although displaying Renaissance and Baroque characters too), is just over 100 years old.The Budapest Parliament building is the third largest Parliament building in the world. It has 691 rooms, 20 kilometers of stairs and at 96 meters




The Chain Bridge was the first permanent stone-bridge connecting Pest and Buda, and only the second permanent crossing on the whole length of the river Danube. It is one of the symbolic buildings of Budapest, the most widely known bridge of the Hungarian capital.  With large lion statues guarding all four corners of the Bridge, its easy to feel its power.  Great photo opportunities come not only from the statues but also from the Chain Bridge itself with the breath-taking Buda Hills & Royal Palace in the background.  The Bridge is absolutely gorgeous when lit up at night.









Heroes’ Square is the largest and most impressive square of the city. The Millennium Monument standing in the middle of the square was erected in 1896 to commemorate the 1000-year-old history of Magyars.




Church of Staint Anne : Definitely worth a stop as this is one of the most beautiful baroque buildings in Budapest. The church itself is highlighted by twin green onion-shaped bell towers on the outside and a dark medieval feel on the inside complete with a large cupola and altar.






İ hope i will have opportunity to see Budapest again. Breathtakingly beautiful city!
