This week we visited Budapest. It was beautiful. But I have to say it had a windchill that could've cut you in half - next visit will be in summer! Here are some snippets from the trip.
The first evening had an atmospheric fog which softened all the lights and made the city evening more magical and pretty :)
A downtown restaurant had this great chandelier made from forks with glass crystals glued to the tines
The Christmas market
Carousels, fluffy woodland creature automatons and Santa Claus in his flash little Merc - what's not to love about this window!!
My favourite stall at the Christmas market sold marionettes and paper theatres ... one day I'm going buy one of these!
FolkArt Craftman's House sells traditional Hungarian crafts. Loved the cushions on the top shelf.
The architecture of the city is stunning - it was easy to miss a lot of the little details because there is so much restoration and building work currently going on that you have to take care whilst walking along the pavements.
there was two of these old telephone kiosks in the arcade - were all telephone boxes once like this in Budapest?
the huge stained glass dome in the arcade
A couple of other places deserve their own posts. I'll add them this week.
