Visiting Budapest and the so-called must see, Post two

In Budapest there are a lot of "must see" places. I have covered many of them in my first post from the Hungarian capital, but here I give you some more.

 On the top of the Andrassy Avenue you find the Millennium Memorial at the Heroes Square.

The Millennium Monument in the middle of the square was erected to commemorate the 1000-year-old history of the Magyars. Archangel Gabriel stands on top of the center pillar, holding the holy crown and the double cross of Christianity. The seven chieftains who led the Magyar tribes to Hungary can be seen on the stand below. Statues of kings and other important historical figures stand on top of the colonnades on either side of the center pillar. (from Wikipedia)

When you take a break for resting your feet or search for a place to have lunch or dinner Budapest is full of interesting restaurants . We named the one below our Secret Garden because you had to go into a backyard to find it.
A visit to the Four Seasons Gresham Palace and it´s Bar and Lobby Lounge can absolutely be recommended

If preferring to sit outside there are many "tents" for shadows or rain. LOW prices all over.

The Grand Synagogue (Largest in Europe) and below the St Stephan´s Basilica (Largest Church in Hungary) we only looked at from outside, but many people talked about them as great to visit

At the end of the blogpost and at sunset, I give you anther image of the Parliament, illuminnated
