Shot of the Day – Buda Castle (Budapest)

Buda Castle Courtyard

Buda Castle sits at the southern tip of Castle Hill and begins what is commonly called the Castle District.. It looks down on the Chain Bridge and some of the best views of Budapest are from the paths that surround it.  It can be reached by walking one of the beautiful paths up the hill.. or the Castle Hill Funicular.. Either way, it is well worth the time to explore..

Shot of the Day – Budapest

Matthias Church

One of the many wonderful sights to visit in Budapest is The Church of Our Lady, more commonly known as Matthias Church . It stands in the heart of the Buda Castle District in front of the Fisherman’s Bastion.  Beautiful gothic architecture and wonderful views of the Pest side of the river make this a “must see” in Budapest.

Shot of the Day – Shoe Memorial on the Danube

Shoe Memorial

The Shoe Memorial in Budapest honors those executed on the banks of the Danube.  Both Jewish people and those accused of “Jewish Activities” were forced to strip naked and face the river.. They were then shot in the back so their bodies would fall into the river to be swept away ..

You can learn more about this very moving memorial here:

Budapest is wonderful at night… The Chain Bridge and Buda Castle dominate the skyline from the river. This area, close to the Shoe Memorial is easily accesible by foot, tram, or bus from the town center.
