Hungary was my second country which I visited in Europe. I chosen Budapest because it is not so far from Poland and it is cheap to travel there. I stayed in a 4 stars Hotel City Inn, it has convenient location, there are Corvin Plaza, many restaurants, bike rent and a tram station nearby. I left my things in the hotel and went to walk through the city to find something interesting. The first thing I liked was The Saint Istvan Basilica, I took a photo and continued my way through the Liberty Square.
The second thing that I liked was Hungarian Parliament building it looked authentic and unique.
Then I visited Fisherman’s Bastion which was located on the hill on the other side of the Danube river. there was a statue of Saint Istvan and the Saint Matthias Church with a big tower. There opened a beautiful view from that Bastion to the other side of the city and to the Parliament building.

I took few photos and continued my way to the statue of the Independence of War
and from there I moved on to the Shandor Palace, it was guarded by 2 guards, people were taking photos with them. Also the were some ruins nearby.
I continued to walk to the King’s Palace and took a few photos of it. After my long walk I went back to the hotel.
The next day I visited Gallert Hill and the Citadel. There was a Liberty statue near the citadel, and from there was very nice view on the city.

Then I went down to The Gallert Hill Cave and took a few photos nearby.
On the other day I just went shopping. In general I liked the city, it has an old architecture, good infrastructure and many shopping malls.
I got positive emotions from that city so I hope I will visit it again.
It was my spontaneous decision to visit Prague. So I took minimal reserve of things and the next day I was in Prague. By the way I travelled by car. When I got to the place, I stayed in the Iris Hotel which was built-in the football stadium and I was lucky to have a room with view on the football stadium. The location of the hotel is really convenient, the McDonald’s is 30 meters from the hotel it is also built-in the football stadium, the shopping mall is 120 meters from the hotel and 5 minutes by foot to a tram station.
The next day I decided to take a walk around the city. The first place that I visited was the Saint Ludmilla Church. It was nice gothic church.
I took a few photos and went down the street. While I was walking to another place I also took photos. After 20 minutes of walking I got to the Vltava River and there were a lot of interesting things such as Dancing House, it looks unusual. Then I went further along the seafront to the National Theatre and I found statues of 2 horses nearby, they looked like real ones.
The next interesting point was Saint Charles Bridge, there was a monument of Saint Charles on the right side from the entrance to the bridge. I took a photo of the bridge tower and passed through it right on the bridge. There were many tourists on that bridge as well as the souvenirs merchants and painters. Passing on I saw many human sculptures on the edges of the bridge.

I crossed the bridge and went to the Prague Castle which was located on a hill. I climbed up on the big stairs which lead me right to the castle. I took a few photos and went further.
Walking through the narrow streets I decided to have a rest, so I went up higher on the stairs and saw a park on the other side of the road and sat down on the bench and had a rest. I continued my way to the observatory which was located in the Petrin park. It is quite big park with special landings for roses and other flowers which I visited.
I got to the observatory, took few photos and that was my finish point.
I went back to the hotel.

Slovenia is small country with beautiful landscapes and mountains. It has an access to the Adriatic Sea.
The Piran is a small town in which I stayed, located near the sea. There are located many hotels and health resorts.
I booked a room at the Fiesa 3 star hotel, it has very nice location 10 meters from the sea and it is surrounded by cliffs. In the first day I went to the town center, it took’s me 10 minutes to get there, I was going on concrete beach and on the left side was really huge cliffs it was very impressive.
On my way to the town center I visited a bell tower which was situated on the cliff, entrance cost me 2 euros.
When I got the top of it I saw a beautiful panoramic view which encompassed the whole town and the nearby area. I’ve made few photos and videos and went down to continue my way.
I went down through the narrow streets to the beacon which was located on the promenade, and I decided to visit one of the many restaurants, my lunch cost me 20 euros, I walked out and made few videos on the promenad.
On the quay stood many boats and yachts.
Finally I got to the town center, there were many tourists on the square and there was a monument of a musician. I took a quick look at the nearby area and went on.
I walked on the waterfront just enjoying the views and breathing fresh air. At sunset I made video shoot and went to the supermarket to buy some products and went back to the hotel. It was the end of my first day in Piran.
