A night at the Opera, Budapest

The Hungarian State Opera house- Neo-Renaissance splendor, with just a touch of baroque for good measure.
It boasts the third best acoustics in Europe after La Scala and the Palais Garnier, but with proportions that feel more intimate than imposing. The perfect place to travel back in time and imagine you’ve stepped into the opulence of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Last night we saw Verdi’s Il trovatore.
Magical.
Tickets start at just $20.00!

Wall mural, Budapest

The end of this building is all a super realist mural. From the roof renovation to the shop below- it’s all just bricks, paint and lots of imagination!

Sunday soak at Szechenyi Baths, Budapest

Budapest today- a chilly 8 degrees, but the pools were a toasty 37 degrees; creating gorgeous clouds of soft white steam.

The mineral springs that feed these baths are rich in sulphate, calcium, magnesium, bicarbonate, fluoride and metaboric acid, all good for the joints.

Roman luxury for just a few Euros!

Park Mural, Budapest.

I love the marriage of painted sky and trees, with their real life counterparts.
Beautiful.
