Budapest Style

Chain Bridge is a magnificent landmark across the Danube connecting the Buda and Pest sides of Budapest.  It was completed in 1849 and, thankfully, has survived several wars.
The architectural details of Budapest add to its charm and magesty.
Hungary has been on the eastern end of Christian Europe at times during past centuries, and perhaps that has led to monuments such as this that proclaim the predominate faith.
Hungary has a rich tradition of folk music
These quaint, well worn steps show evidence of the steps of generations.

I was in Budapest for three or four days back in 1970. Hungary was behind the Iron Curtain, but was still an interesting place.

The Lion guarding the bridge is quite amazing! Love the well worn steps!
