This weekend me and my friedns decided to go to Budapest!!! It took about 5 hours to get there with bus from Zagreb, so it was not too bad + the tickets was really cheap.
I didn't know anything about Budapest or Hungary before going, so I had zero expectations, but oh my god I loved it so much! Such a nice city. Here is what we did the first day:
We checked in at our Airbnb. We thought we rented out own apartment, but turned out we just rented a room in someone elses apartment. Oh well, the location was really nice, we stayed on the Pest side, close to the WestEnd mall.
We decided to walk all the way to the Buda castle that is on the Buda side, so we got to see the Parliament.
Shoes on the Danube bank, a memorial houring the people that died during world war II.
A huge funicular, or Uspinjaca as we say in Croatia, that went up to the castle, but we decided to walk up.
The beautiful Buda castle. We went up to the castle at the perfect time, we got to see it both in the sun but also as the sun was setting and they light the castle up.
After the castle we went to the old town of Budapest, also on the Buda side. We went to Laburintus which is an old cave system under the Buda castle that was used during the cold war and actually, count Dracula was imprisoned there a long time ago. It was pitch dark in the tunnels, but we got a latern so we could see where we're going. It was scary but also super intresting, I love doing things like this.
We ended up walking home from the Castle as well, which was great because we could see the parliament from the other side, when it was lit up. So pretty. The night ended after we grabed some food and a drink.
