Timisoara, Romania to Budapest, Hungary

A late afternoon walk around Timisoara revealed lovely old buildings situated around public squares. We found our way to the main street where there was a magnificent orthodox church. Dinner overlooking this church and the main square gave a lovely ending to the day.

We then left the town, destination Budapest with the aim of arriving so that we had the afternoon for sightseeing. Morning tea at a service centre and as it was too early to check in, Ian and I  left our Vulcan at the hotel and did some exploring.

Walking up to the Citadel gave us expansive and beautiful views of the Danube and the city below.  We dined on local Hungarian food at a small restaurant at the top of the citadel. The citadel had references to the Olympics both in posters and in statues but with no English translation we are not sure what connection is to be made. The building itself was not opened but the view showed us why so many tourists were at the top of the hill.

 

Walking down and along the river gave us views of the palace and the beautiful parliament building. Bronze shoe sculptures along the walkway were intriguing. Why were they there…what did they represent?

Dinner at the hotel restaurant with a glass of wine finished off a delightful afternoon.

While we were dining, Vulcan was enjoying her time with the other cars in the hotel carpark.
