Buda & Pest

Today I learnt that Budapest is split by the Danube river into 2 parts, the posh Buda and Pest that was where the servants of Buda’s royalty used to live and where currently lies the more lively part of the city.
We crossed the bridge to Buda to visit Empress’ Sissy’s former residence, which affords a magnificent view over the city.
I also discovered the Faust Wine cellar, which is mysteriously located in the tunnel under the Hilton Hotel. Apparently it used to be part of a Dominican monastery and when the Hilton management bought the property, they decided to keep it.
