Hungary For A Day, Welcome To Budapest


Map picture


After a bus to train transfer from the airport, I arrive at DEAK TER metro station. As I leave the depths of the Hungarian Underground, I am welcomed above with the smell of fresh warm baked bread.

Budpest Canon 007I discover this pleasing scent is coming  from a pastry and coffee shop at the top of the escalator. 




Above ground, I am given a quick introduction to the beautiful Hungarian architecture within a brief walking distance from the metro station.

Criss crossing the city to get my bearing, I find myself at Saint Stephen the largest church in Hungry. Built between 1851 and 1905 it still has a towering presence.
