Hungarian Architecture

I am so honored to be Freshly Pressed! Thank you to WordPress and to you blog readers – so exciting! I love reading all your comments – so uplifting to hear your memories of Budapest, your plans to visit. This city has made such an impact on us all. : )

A few final words about my Hungary visit – I was so struck by the inspirational architecture around every corner! Every street looks different, every building has its own personality.

From shingled roofs and old, colorful buildings…


…to bright, vivid paint…yellow.

…and beautiful patterns…


…or even purple accents and highlights…
color accents.

… and the soaring marble of St. Stephen’s Basilica.


The interplay of colors and attention to architectural detail – both inside and outside the buildings – is fabulous. I could walk up and down the same street 10 times and notice something new with every pass. : )

  2. Thank you so much for all the wonderful pics…! I was born and raised at Budapest, however, I haven’t been able to go home ever since I moved to the US 3 years ago. I do miss my old town, and these pics really stand for all the hidden beauties I always loved there!
