Out and About in Budapest

CC bundled up... its definitely fall here in Budapest!
Heroes' Square
Millennium Monument
built in 1896 to celebrate Hungary's 1,000th birthday
Szepmuveszeti Museum
(Museum of Fine Arts)
Mucsarnok
(Hall of Art)
CC was impressed
Heroe's Square is the gateway to City Park...
which has a huge duck pond!
This made someone very happy.
Thank goodness they have ducks in Hungary!
Eventually all the duck mania got to Bop.
She fell asleep on the ride back to the apartment.
She's now napping.
Today we ventured out to City Park, which is Budapest's version of Central Park. It's a giant park in the middle of the city. Heroe's Square is the gateway to the park and its at the end of Andrassy ut. Our apartment is on the corner of Andrassy and Izabel, so it's right down the street. Heroe's Square has a beautiful monument built to commemorate the city's 1,000th birthday and has several great museums flanking the square. We made it just a little ways into the park, where we saw the duck ponds, but I guess all the excitement proved too much. My little Budapest baby pooped out in the stroller. I wheeled her back home and she's now taking a glorious little nap. We're going to go get my SIM card and GPS this afternoon and then I plan to go back to the park. The park also hosts a zoo, circus, castle and something called "Parade Street". Sounds like fun!
