Budapest, Me is impressed

After lovely Lisbon, I didn’t have too many expectation of Budapest, which I knew very little about.

So far I must report that I have been floored by this amazing city, which I would liken to Paris or Prague, my two most favorite European capitals.

First, I am a sucker of coffee culture and Budapest is full of cute, stylish, traditional, homely coffee shops (kavehaz), everywhere you look.

Second, the architecture of the empire times is gorgeous, especially when lit at night time (I loved strolling around the Danube).

Third, I cannot get enough of the walking outside culture that takes people into the streets until the wee hours, even with the cold (reminds me of my Russia times).
