The government ctr - amazing building

Budapest and Hungary in general have an interesting mix. The city is predominantly old world romance. Gothic and baroque architecture. Very medieval. Very detailed and ornate. but then it is startkly contrasted by the communist influence which ruled for over 40 years. plain ugly block buildings that are so typical of communist nations. This was even more evident when we cruised a little further up the danube between Austria and Czechloslovakia. Alpine villages on the left decorated with flower boxes, ornate buildings and castles. Then on the right, cold, nondescript block housing.

Honestly it is surprisingly uncrowded. while it looks congested, there are no highrises in the area. so you don't have the amount of people crammed into the area like you do an american city.

Yeah, some of the buildings look so close together, like one lady can stick her hand out her kitchen window and hand her neighbor a stick of butter :lol:
They have houses like that in California tho too......so I guess it's everywhere!

the buildings are joined and the streets are narrow no doubt. but one thing you don't have is urban sprawl. when the city ends, it ends. you go from city to farm or forest.
