According to an article in National Geographic Traveler the route of Tram #2 as it moves along the curve of the Danube is one of the top 10 tram rides in the world. Having been on one I declare that to be true.
The Danube cuts Budapest into two – the Buda and the Pest. It is remarkable how remnants of the ages of prosperity, cruelty and suffering all find themselves mixed together like a potpourri.
You can choose to explore the early days of Budapest – the tribes of Magyar to the days of King and then Saint Stephan, or if you choose you can explore the incomprehensible blot on human history , the holocaust or wonder at how soon liberators become occupiers i.e that communist side of Budapest.
Here are a few pictures. Stories to follow soon.
