There are a lot of boat traffic on the river, we sat down for a while and looking at the boats.
Old trams can take you around in the city. We have used them twice.

Hungarian State Opera House:
One of the two statues in front of the door.
As all opera houses the style is fabulous with its details, the roof over the door.
A goat, but what does this animal has to do with the opera ?
After we had looked at the opera house we start walking to the synagogue a couples of blocks away.

We have seen these paintings on the streets at several places. We were not sure what it is, maps or ?
Fan with mist to keep the restaurant guests cool.

The complicated ornament patterns over the door.

After the synagogue we start walking back to the hotel, must prepare for tomorrow when we go back home.
A building at street Deak Ferenc ter.
Back to our street Zrinyl, a couples of Segway people pass us on a guided tour. Up to the hotel and packing our stuff to be ready for tomorrows travel back home.
At the other end of our street we have Szent Istvan Bazilika, we didn't go that far this last evening. Stopped at the restaurants.
Later in the evening a lot of bikers pass by which gave me the opportunity to take some nice night time photos.
Later in the evening we gave up and walked back to the hotel for some sleep. Next day we took a taxi to the airport. Was at airport two hours before departure if there was some problem. We got the message that the departure was delayed by 4 hour, as a compensation we got a dinner at the airport.
One of my most exciting travels, must do more visits to Eastern Europe !
