This is a beautiful view of the Hungarian Parliament building standing directly on the banks of the Danube. It is the seat of the National Assembly of Hungary and the largest building in the country. Did you know that the banks of the Danube are a UNESCO world heritage site?

This gorgeously artistic postcard was sent to me by one my friends in Budapest and shows the St. Stephen’s Basilica in Budapest. It is named in honour of Stephen, the first King of Hungary and is a really impressive building.

I had the luck to travel several times to Hungary and was visiting Budapest once. I can only recommend to everybody to visit Hungary and meet these lovely and welcoming people. Hungary and Budapest have a long history and there is a lot to explore. Did you actually know that Budapest was only formed in 1873 when the cities Buda, Pest and Obuda were unified?

Have you been to Hungary? What was your favourite memory?
