We have had a day and a half in Budapest. It has lots of beautiful buildings. The first afternoon we walked along the river Danube and looked around Pest.
We went into St. Stephen’s Basilica – it had lots of fake candles and big paintings and mosaics.
Today we walked into Pest again and saw the Parliament buildings. There was a memorial to the 1956 Uprising. Lots of people were killed by Soviets. There were bullet holes in the stairwell.
Then we crossed the river and went to Buda. We climbed a big hill to the castle. We had pizza for lunch, and I had a strawberry icecream.
There are lots of statues in Budapest. We did a lot of walking. (about 35,000 steps!!!)
Wow that is a lot of statues plus a lot of steps. I like that little frog statue.
