Finalizing Budapest

Yesterday after going to the gym I went to Szenchenyi bath.
It is ranked the second best bath house in Budapest, although it
was my personal favorite! The baths were outdoors and on a nice day
like yesterday, it was very relaxing. There seemed to be many more
young people at this bath than the others I have been to. After the
baths we came back and got ready for an excursion to the opera. We
saw an opera written by Mozart! Seeing an opera in a foreign
country is interesting, it was sung in German and the subtitles
were shown in Hungarian. Therefore, it was a little difficult to
understand! I was happy I had been to an opera before so I
generally knew what to expect. Today was one of the last days we
have in Budapest, so I made the most of it! It was a beautiful day,
so Leonardo and I climbed up to the top of Gellert hill for a view
of the city. Climbing the hill was something I’ve wanted to do
since we arrived in Budapest, and it definitely lived up to my
expectations. The view provided a beautiful panorama of the city.
We spent the rest of the daylight hours walking around Budapest and
taking in the sites. For dinner tonight, we got together with the
Roma who we have been working with at a local pub. There was food,
a band, and dancing. It was a great way to finish our program with
the Roma from Budapest! I have found Budapest to be a very
interesting city. It sits in limbo between Western and Eastern
Europe, and is often considered the ‘gateway to Eastern Europe’.
There are vivid examples of both cultures in the people and
architecture.

Viszlát most!

    Outdoor baths and opera- what great experiences! You are certainly maximizing your available time to see and experience Europe. With the events in neighboring Ukraine, your stay in Budapest immersed in the culture of the region is very timely. Not only are you seeing history, you are where history is being made.

    What a wonderful view! That must have been a fascinating hike! The bath house also looks amazing. Would you say it is similar to a hot tub?

      It is similar to a hot tub! The major difference is that in bath houses the water has minerals in it which do wonders for your skin. Thanks for your comments!
