Wandering By Tram With A Budapest Transit Card

And inspectors checked our cards on two occasions as we rode, not to mention the inspectors standing on guard at the subway entrances.

Sunny, cloudy, sunny, cloudy, and rainy as we waited for our final bus #16 that runs up Castle Hill. We confirm that Budapest weather can change quickly.

The ironic Liberty Statue. Ironic? Yes, was erected on Gellért Hill in 1947 to mark the Soviet liberation of Hungary from Nazi forces during World War II. That "liberation" lasted for some time, didn't it?

One section of the exceptionally large Parliament Buildings that we'd seen from our hotel room window. The buildings are two tram-stops long.

From the Pest side we can look up across the river at Castle Hill, Matthias Church, and our hotel.
