Day 3: An evening with friends in Budapest

Heya!

So this is the second last post in my Budapest holiday post series. I hope you have been enjoying reading them!

Two of my friends were planning to got to Hungary around the same time as myself and my family. One of them is from Hungary so she knew all the good places to eat and sightsee there. We arranged a time to meet and I was really looking forward to it. I was meeting them in the evening so I the morning and most of the afternoon to enjoy Budapest with my family.

We decided to go to a place called Hereos Square which from what we heard it is a gorgeous place and we were eager to see it for ourselves. We had to get that tourist bus again that I wrote about in my last post. We unfortunately had a similar long wait. Thankfully this time we were at the correct bus stop! We one of the ladies who run the tourist bus and we asked her if she knew anything about the late bus and she didn’t. She kindly rang the bus service and she told us another would be along in a couple of minutes. Luckily she was right. We were very grateful to be on our way.

Honestly Heroes Square was absolutely beautiful. The Square itself was lovely and I loved the idea why it was created. I don’t remember all of it but as much as I remember is that it was made to remember all the wonderful people of Hungary that the people there considered to be Heroes. There was a statue erected in honour of each person. The gardens there were lovely too and there were also some beautiful buildings that looked like castles. It was almost magical. I’d love to go back here someday and spend more time there.

I was really excited to meet up with my friends that evening. ย We got the underground and the metro to our restaurant. It was nice to travel a bit more around the city and get to know it a bit more. The restaurant we went to was decorated as a medieval place. All the waitresses and waiters were in medieval dress. The food was absolutely delicious! It was honestly the best food I had tasted during my holidays. I had pulled pork with onions, potatoes and bacon. The portions were huge and I felt so bad when I couldn’t finish it!! Afterwards we spent ages talking which meant we finally had room for dessert! I got icecream and so did one of my other friends. The presentation of the dessert was amazing. It was three scoops of icecream; coconut, chocolate and vanilla in a bowl with whipped cream on top with a drizzle of chocolate syrup on top. It was heavenly!

After our meal we spent some time in a nearby park. We walked over Margaret Bridge which was nearby. The park was lovely. There was a huge water fountain that was lit up in changing colours. We sat by the fountain and dipped our feet in the cold water to cool us down. There was a large crowd of people around the fountain too listening to the music that was playing beside us too. It was so much fun!

Out of nowhere it started lashing rain and thunder and lightening came with it. We ran out of the trees to somewhere safer and thankfully the rain eased up pretty quickly. It was getting pretty dark so I headed back to my hotel. My friends brought me back to my hotel as I was still unfamiliar with the streets of Budapest. We got the tram back which is said to have the best views in Europe and it certainly didn’t disappoint. It went right around the perimeter of the Parliament which was lit up and it looked gorgeous. We got to see the rest of the city on the way back. It seemed like a pretty quick journey back but we got to see so much!

When I got back to my hotel I spent some time at the hotel bar with my family and had the most delicious strawberry lemonade. I was pretty tired after my eventful day out so I went to bed soon afterwards.

Hope you liked my post about my holidays.

Have you ever explored a city by night? I think cities can be so pretty at night time!

Until next weekend!

  14. Last year I had dreadful anxiety at the time I was due to go away to Budapest so had to cancel my trip – I’m totally loving visiting the city vicariously through your blog! That pink lemonade looks delicious and going on the tram sounds like the most beautiful route of public transport!
