Prague is better than Budapest. For the tourist. For me.
That said, it’s a somewhat similar experience. LOTS of walking. And I was happy to finally visit Buda and Pest.
I stayed near the Great Synagogue, largest outside NY City, on the floodplain Pest side. And not far from the NEW Budapest Eye.
Most of my photos are architecture and statuary. Much of this is more modern than Prague as Budapest has been destroyed in so many wars over the centuries.
The highlights are mostly over the Danube river on the hilly Buda side.
Buda Castle is no more. It’s a palace complex today, most built between 1749 and 1769.
Like Prague, Budapest is plagued with tourists, all Instagram influencers. 😀
