I passed by this place many times not realizing that it was the Great Market that I had on my list. It’s quite modest looking from the outside, but once you walk inside, it’s a hustling and bustling market place that accepts cash only from individual vendors. It’s full of people buying fresh produce, wine, sausages, small nicknacks, etc.

This place is amazing!!! This is the Fisherman’s Bastion, located on the Castle Hill in Budapest. It’s part of a large compound that consists of homes, shops, churches, and the Buda Castle. Greg and I arrived here early this morning and the view couldn’t be any better. Good morning!

Tonight, we visited Padrón, located right in the center of Budapest. It’s small, family run, and delicious! This was such a long, but lovely day-we walked all day long with very few periods of rest. We got home, rested a bit and left hoping this place wasn’t closed since they were soon closing for their summer holiday. We ordered an assortment of things, and nothing disappointed us. This is a must visit if you ever get the opportunity to come to Budapest.

What a delight! Greg and I ventured out of the center of Budapest and made our way to Szentendre, his favorite town in Hungary! Szentendre is this lovely village that’s just a 40-minute train ride/ 15-minute car ride from Budapest. This little town is adorned with cobblestone roads and blissfully colored architecture. Later we took the train to Fellini Római Kultúrbisztró to have something to drink, and just relax since we had been out all day. Later we went out to eat at Padron. I’ll dedicate a post just for that!

Today, I roamed the city alone on a mission! I wanted to get a nice unobscured view of the House of Parliament, Budapest, and that’s exactly what I found.
