My final day in Budapest was more of a quick tour. I do not really like rushed explorations however it is better to explore rather than do nothing at all. Personally, I would have spent at least a week in the city.
Budapest was an unexpected trip for me. I have given up on going to Budapest while I was at Vienna since train tickets were expensive. However, we got really lucky while in Prague. I accompanied my roommate who was planning to buy a bus ticket to Poland. There were plenty of deals, Budapest included.
So, I took the chance. My other roommate ( who was also going to Budapest), decided to forego his train ride, instead opting for the bus trip. Luckily, he got the full price back for that train ticket. We headed to Budapest that midnight.
Sleepy and dazed, we finally arrived in Budapest. We slept for another three hours before exploring the city. I was lucky that my roommate already knows his way around so I pretty much got a free tour.
I remembered eating goulash while I was in Vienna. During my stay there, I was quite disappointed that I would not be able to visit Budapest despite being so close, so I had my fill of goulash. The train prices were too ridiculous to even consider taking that trip. However, I found myself in Budapest after a day in Prague. It just hit me, I visited three countries in three days. Of course I was awestruck as I’m a first -timer, but I guess this is normal for European residents.
Anyway, I would like to write about that later on and instead focus on the wonderful Central Market Hall.
