Budapest, Hungary
Budapest is the capital of Magyar (Hungary). Split down the middle by the Danube River, Budapest is a tale of two cities. On the west bank sits the hilly, ancient town of Buda (BOO-dah); and on the east bank is the cosmopolitan berg of Pest (PESHT). Buda and Pest join in name and spirit to form a city that has survived and thrived despite thousands years of invasion by one European empire after another (Roman, Mongol, Turkish, Nazi, Stalin). This shot is of the colorful buildings along Buda’s Hunyadi János street in the castle district. Now home to artists and galleries, the buildings along the narrow cobblestone street retain their colorful, friendly, Baroque exteriors despite centuries of post-war rebuilding.
