2000 - Budapest, Hungary

Another Easter break.

sunny
View 2000 Budapest on nzhamsta's travel map.

As can be seen from the photos the weather was beautiful, the beer was cold (and cheap) and it is a great place to wander around. There is lots of history here.

The tram system also works very well which is great considering my hotel was quite a way from the city centre.

The Buda Castle is a huge complex and has many churches, statues, rooms and great views over the city.
