Budapest
Hungary
Budapest is Hungary's capital city.  As the sun briefly
emerges on a foggy day, you are looking across the
Danube River to Budapest's signature building, the
1904 neo-Gothic Parliament.
Even without the sun, it's clear this is highly
outdated architecture for 1904.  Incomparable.
They don't construct Parliament buildings like this anymore.
Another Budapest landmark is the 1849 Chain Bridge,
Hungary's first span across the Danube.  It remains in full
use, carrying automobiles that could not have been imagined
when the Chain Bridge was built.
The heavy fog cost me pictures of and from Budapest's
Castle District.  The final images of this trip and my video
are of the Chain Bridge attractively lit at dusk.
