A few days in Budapest during mid December gave us a great opportunity to practice our architectural photography skills. Such a beautiful city required much more than our allotted five days of discovery, meaning we had a packed sightseeing agenda that allowed us little more than a feeble scratch of the city’s surface. Any first trip to a new destination usually means that tourist highlights are high on the agenda, and much of our time was spent seeking them out. Like most other cities though, glimpses of an equally interesting urban landscape shine through manicured facades of government and public buildings, churches etc. To have time to explore these was something we sadly lacked, and is the curse of many of our city breaks. Added to our ‘return to’ destination list, it accompanies several other locations that, one day, we hope to revisit.
