Budapest Hungary

Budapest on the Danube, lit up at night

As a traveler, there are some iconic photos that I’ve wanted to see for myself in person. One such photo is the Parliament building, which has been posted in practically any travel magazine, book or web site. It’s the 3rd largest parliament in the world, second to Romania and Argentina.  I’m finally able to say I’ve seen the Budapest Parliament at night, and while traveling by river boat… Check it off my bucket list!

While a camera won’t hold a light to the real thing, here are my photos which were taken with an iPhone6 between 10:30 pm-12:00 am.
