Glittering Budapest

I had a quite magical and relaxing evening sightseeing in Budapest, Hungary. Aside from having Coach Airnel Abarra, AS Director of Sport Research, tour me around, I also enjoyed the evening breeze and glittering lights of the city.

What I loved about our night tour was that it let me appreciate the impressive architecture of Budapest’s historical sites even more as the lights and shadows help them come to life, creating a dramatic effect.

We spent time visiting some of the must-see attractions in Budapest such as the Hungarian State Opera House, a symbol of more than three hundred years of operatic tradition in Hungary; the Hungarian National Gallery where you can see many nineteenth- and twentieth-century artworks; the Hungarian Parliament Building, the world’s third-largest national assembly; and the Heroes’ Square where you can find the Millennium Memorial that commemorates the seven chieftains of the Magyar tribes who founded Hungary.

Budapest is truly a global city rich in arts and history. I had a memorable stay and I hope to be back with more time to explore the place.
