Dear travelers. This blog is for sharing the highlights of Hungary and especially Budapest. This is a beautiful place with many marvels. If you need travel advice, feel free to ask me. Have a look at the pictures! ///// Kedves magyar látogatóim! Szeretném megosztani veletek a kisebb-nagyobb csodákat, amiket szeretek Magyarországon. Vegyétek észre Ti is a szépet! Jó nézelődést!
For Eastern Europeans these housing estates must be familiar. Not so much for Western people. The photo was shot at Kőbánya. These homes - if not renovated - provide extreme heat at summer and high heating bills at winter - not kidding. They and many more similar homes were built after the wars to provide homes for people - especially for factory workers. Nowadays these are the cheapest flats available so many young couples choose to move in such homes.
My personal favourite location is Hortobágy (opens in a new window). There you’ll find beautiful nature and horsemen whom we call “csikós" (pronounce: chie-kowsh). They handle up to five horses at the same time. They start practicing at a very young age and build a very good relationship with these beautiful animals.
Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME) again. Here you can see OMIKK (National Technical Information Centre and Library). It’s connected by a skyway or bridge to the main building of BME.
