Budapest impressions

In April I went to Budapest, Hungary for a short trip. I really liked the city and it kind of reminded me of Prague and Sofia for some reason.

When visiting Budapest, don’t forget to check out Spa or Therms, there are thousands of them in the city 🙂

Fun fact #1: my friend brought a set of cards with her and we played cards in a pub, until the waiter came and said playing card games is illegal in Budapest.

Fun fact #2: you better not raise your glass and cheer in public, it will not be appreciated there. In 1848, Austrians raised their glasses and cheered when a Hungarian leader got executed so the tradition got banned for 150 years and is still seen as an insult.
