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.

Prague

P1040809It 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.

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.
