Budapest is the last stop on our cruise down the Danube. It’s a bit of a whistle-stop. Only one day. We have an early arrival in the morning with some free time to look around the covered market area before setting off on the afternoon city tour, another bus and another walk……………well these buses and walks are starting to wear on your humble correspondent. But one must do them. So away we go seeing more buildings and monuments.
There is something special though about Budapest, particularly from up on top of Buda Hill overlooking the Danube and the majestic old buildings. We also stick our noses into the Opera House and have a young lady come out and sing to us from a balcony………….
After dinner the ship does a night-time cruise up and down the Danube with the city lights illuminating the buildings, bridges and glistening on the Danube’s surface. Really quite a marvelous sight.
One could spend a week in this city wandering around eating goulash and ice creams; sucking in the history and sights.
The next day will find us leaving the ship and starting the final leg of our journey. A full day bus trip from Budapest through Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic to Prague.
