Budapest with my Iphone

I prefer to photograph with my Canon EOS 550 but I am always using my Iphone too as I want to share some of my pictures quickly. I am really bad with editing my Canon pictures but using the app Camera+ on my Iphone makes it super fun as I can choose from about 24 different filters. All of the pictures in this post have been taken on my Iphone and are edited in Camera+.

Above is the Stefan Basilica. 

The Parliament building. 

The Matthias church. 

The State Opera, and below its ceiling (above the entrance). 

The Vajdahunyad building. 

The Szechenyi bath. 

The ceiling inside the hall of the Szechenyi bath, and view from the window (below). 

The square of heroes (aka the city park). 

Amazing buildings along the beautiful avenue called Andrassy Ut.

Budapest #Beautiful #Buildings #Bigcity

I guess a blue sky every day is a little too much to ask for! Budapest on a grey day means less color in my pictures but hopefully the beauty of the city still shines through. 

The State Opera House. 

Wonderful ceiling outside the entrance of the opera. 

More amazing buildings along the Andrassy ut (avenue). 
The avenue leads to the city park called Varosliget. 

There were a few embassies along this avenue. 

Mucsarnok (translates as the art market);  for contemporary art and concerts. 
The building was finished in 1895. 

The Vajdahunyad castle/fortress. The building was drawn by Ignac Alpar and he wanted to show the development in Hungarian architecture in one single building. The styles are Renaissance, Gothic, Baroque and Romanesque, and all in all this castle represents about 20 different famous Hungarian buildings. 

This is the famous Szechenyi bath. It was opened in 1913 and consists of indoor- and outdoor pools, among them the deepest and hottest pool in Hungary. 

My friend Ida on the square of the heroes! This square was previously used for communist demonstrations. 

This statue in the middle of the square is called the Millennium monument.

Budapest (up close on a Friday).

Budapest is a fairly big city, but at the same time it is walkable. There was still much more to see when we left after 2,5 days but I think we saw a WHOLE lot too..

The St. Stephen´s basilica. It was built from 1851-1905. It is shaped as a Greek cross. 

The magnificent Parlament building. 

Szent Anna templom/ St Anna´s church. 

Kapucinus templom/Capuchin church. 

Budapest Castle Hill Funicular. 

Matyas church. 

The Parlament building is probably one of my favorite buildings ever..
