While in Budapest, we will be staying in an apartment building on the Buda side of the city. Budapest is divided in half by the Danube (Duna) river; the Buda side to the west of the river and is hilly and more residential. The Pest side is flat and has more business and attractions (Parliament, Opera House, etc). Our apartment, which it formerly belonged to Dora’s grandmother, is conveniently located in the same building as Dora’s parents. To give you an idea of where we are situated, here are a couple of panorama shots taken from our apartment windows:
This first picture is from a bedroom window facing the street. It is a bit distorted because I used a program to stitch a couple of shots together to get the panorama (I can assure you that the street and buildings are straight). It is a fairly busy thoroughfare, though you can see the hills of Buda in the background.
This shot is from our kitchen. It shows the inside of the block formed by a couple of busy thoroughfares. You can see the backs of some large apartment buildings, but also some other smaller houses and buildings that have apartments in them.
