Train down to Budapest
Budapest HERE I COME!!!
We arrived during the evening and checked into this hostel called boomerang and I was given a whole apartment when I only booked a twin private. DAMN COOL! Unfortunately, the photos is with my friend so I couldn't share with you guys how big it was, not to mention the staff are very friendly. After checking in, I decided to check out the place abit before heading for dinner in a restaurant that was recommended by the staff in the hostel.

We walked further down abit to view the famous Chain bridge that linked Buda and Pest together.
The Chain Bridge
It was drizzling quite heavily and I decided to head for dinner and have an early night. The place I went was Lugas and they serve typical Hungarian food and it's pretty near my hostel.
Food we ordered
We woke up pretty early and decided to cover the stuff over at Buda as we were staying in Pest. It wasn't a great day to explore as it was raining, nevertheless we still brave out into the rain and explore.
First stop, the Parliament building which is situated at Pest.
We then head over to Pest and by that time, I was totally drench in the rain since my umbrella was already damage in Dublin(long time ago) so I threw it away.
We saw this buffet restaurant with free flow champagne and decided to head in to seek shelter from the rain and meanwhile grab some food since it was near lunch time.
After the buffet, I was on my way the the Fisherman's Bastion which is a place that overlooks the whole of Pest and along the way I came across this church called St Mary's Church but it was close found the church architecture nice so I took a photo of it.
The awesome view
The Parliament from Fisherman's Bastion (isn't it magnificent!)
The Matthias Church that is situated opposite the Fisherman's Bastion which is undergoing reconstruction.

After absorbing the view, next on the list was to see the Royal Palace that is about 20minutes from the Fisherman's Bastion.
