Haha..Here you go !


And from Slovakia we were entering Hungary..The below is the Hungary Border. Budapest is about 90kms from this place so good one and half hour again from this place.

And we entered the Budapest City.

First thing which caught out attention was the Electric Buses, they have the Dedicated bus lane. Pretty cool.

While we Approached this Bridge we knew there is something interesting coming up on the Right hand side of the Bridge

And the Famous Buda Castle, absolutely Beautiful !

And then we reached our Hotel, we had Booked Hotel Holiday-inn because this was very close to our office but the downside was this was 8kms away from the city :( There was lot of Traffic in Budapest because most of the roads were under construction and travel time from city to Hotel was 45 mins!

Settled in the Hotel, we had a meeting next day morning till 2PM post that we were leaving to Bratislava.

We left to Bratislava at about 3PM. The distance from Budapest to Bratislava is about 200KMS. Thank god there is a motor way unlike the roads from Poland to Budapest which means that we are going to reach there faster. We hired the Mercedes Viano again and we were off to Bratislava.

The Average speed we did was about 130KM/HR and by 5PM we reached Bratislava, pretty quick!

We had Hotel Crowne plaza booked there which is very much in the city centre and to our surprise there was Restaurant Ashoka in this Hotel. We were all bored eating English food and we wanted some Indian Food. Had our dinner in Ashoka which was pretty decent.

Now the time was almost 10PM and we are going back to Budapest next day noon which means we do not have enough time to check out the city. So decided to take a walk around to see what ever possible because Europe looks beautiful in Night !

Below is the picture of the Hotel where we stayed.

This is the Parliament building which is Bang opposite of the Hotel which we were staying

The below 2 pictures are taken from my Room ! This is all I managed to see around and capture. We had a meeting here again till 2PM. We booked a car back to Hungary which took couple of hours to turn up and this time it was the Mercedes E Class. We left Bratislava at about 4PM and reached Budapest at 6PM.

Checked-in Holiday Inn again and there was a change in plan which was a bad one :(

Our Initial plan was to Stay in Budapest till Sunday and then leave to Poland but we changed our plan to leave Budapest to Poland on Friday itself which was the next day. And we have not seen the city at all. We only have that Night to see the city which is very bad but left with no option. At about 8PM we left to the City like I said it is about 8KMS from the Hotel. Hired a Taxi and he charged us about 17EUR. Asked the driver where to go what to see and he suggested a place and he dropped us there. Below is what we saw there.
