Another Easter break.
Friday 21 April 2000 - Monday 24 April 2000
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.
