Images of Budapest

Have just returned from a river cruise along the River Danube, sailing from Budapest in Hungary through to Bucharest in Romania. As you would expect, I have well over 1,000 photos to sort out, and here are three of the ones taken at the start of the trip, in Budapest, which I hope you will enjoy.

Imre Nagy was Prime Minister of Hungary on two occasions. His second term was during the revolution in 1956, and it ended when his non-Soviet-backed government was brought down during the failed Hungarian Revolution. He was tried and executed in 1958, and buried in an unmarked grave. His name could not to be mentioned during Communism, but he became a symbol of freedom. In 1989, he was reburied. A crowd of 200,000 gathered at Heroes' Square for the funeral. His statue, facing the Parliament Building, is located on a tiny square next to Kossuth Square.

The Hungarian Parliament building from the opposite bank of the Danube. The building stretches 268 meters in its length, along the Danube embankment. Ornamented with white neo-gothic turrets and arches, it forms the most outstanding landmark of the Pest side horizon. Statues of Hungarian monarchs and military commanders decorate the outer walls.
