On This Day – The Bridges of Budapest

Even though travel restrictions are easing I am not yet minded to risk it so I still have no new stories to post so I continue to go through my picture archives and see where I was on this day at any time in the last few travelling years.

On 1st November 2014 I was visiting the Hungarian Capital of Budapest on the River Danube for a second time…

The River Danube is the twenty-ninth longest river in the world and flows through ten countries, which is more than any other river in the World except the Congo in Central Africa, which also runs through ten countries. The River Mississippi in the USA runs through or borders ten different States.

The Danube starts in the Black Forest in Germany and then runs like a European timeline through Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Romania, Bulgaria, Moldova and the Ukraine before it finishes its journey by discharging its memories into the Black Sea at the Danube Delta. On route it passes through the four capital cities of Vienna, Bratislava, Budapest and Belgrade.

  2. Great post as ever, though I can’t say I notice travel restrictions easing, now or any time soon 😦


  3. What would a city without its bridges and rivers! Great Buda and Pest post!


  4. Hi Andrew, thanks for another great memory jerker. Were the “ruin bars” there when you visited Budapest? We loved the city, had great experiences there, including the unique atmosphere of those bars.


  5. Loved Budapest, and crossed all the bridges!
