Me and my friend departured from Poland to Vienna by bus. We arrived there at 6:00 am. During these two days we visited the Hedenplatz.

Walked along the promenade of the Danube River, visited the Maria Theresien Platz which was located between 2 museums and there was a fair and crowdy. There were many souvenir shops and hand-made products which were selling there and were quite expensive but anyway we bought a few.

We walked on the territory of the Schloss Schonbrun Palace, we liked this place because it was quiet and calm.

Another two places which we saw were Votive Church and The Burgtheatre, but unfortunately the a part of the front of a church was under reconstruction so we couldn’t see it.

We also took a few photos with the Saint Stephen’s Cathedral.

It was interesting city to visit, so we liked it. In the evening we bought tickets to a bus and went back to Poland.

Budapest

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

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.
