Pest - attractions, pictures

 

Pest is located on the eastern bank of the Danube. It is the largest from the three components of the Hungarian capital; it occupies approximately 2/3 of Budapest’s territory.

Tourists are first brought to Heroes' Square - there is a sculpture composition created for the anniversary of 1896, which is a semicircle of statues of prominent Hungarian statesmen.

On both sides of the square there is the Museum of Fine Arts and the Exhibition Hall, and not far away there is a bath (with thermal springs, of course), a zoo and a landmark with the indecent name Vajdahunyad.

Vajdahunyad castle - a complex of buildings of different architectural styles, copying the most significant Hungarian buildings.

It is named after the castle of a noble family of Hunyadi (one of their representatives is King Matthias Korvin). A copy of this castle, of course, is also present. All this is located in a large park.

There is also a monument to Anonymous, the nameless author of the ancient Hungarian chronicle. Tourists, with their touch, rubbed his pen to shine. What, interestingly, desire is necessary at the same time to think? Write without errors? :)

On the other side of the Heroes Square is the Budapest Zoo. What we liked - access to safe animals is closed purely symbolically, sometimes just the string is taut.

Zoo. Camels Apparently, not spitting :)

 

Moreover, there is a special pen with different small animals, where people are allowed and where all these lambs and goats can be petted and fed. Kids really like it.

Zoo. Baby pen :)

 

In general, the zoo is big. In addition to the animals themselves, there are various buildings - for example, in the middle of the zoo, there is a large natural rock on which you can climb and observe the surroundings, and, as in many European zoos, amusing sculptures.

Zoo. Wingspan, like a bird Uhu. Until Fakokeselyu is not yet down. Great and mighty Hungarian languige...

 

In Pest, on the bank of the Danube, there is a building that has become a symbol of Budapest - Parliament.

The sight is really impressive. You can even get inside, if you wish - on certain days there are guided tours. I do not know, really, what's interesting there.

Another symbol of the city is Vaci street.

This is a pedestrian street with shops and restaurants. Naturally, a must visit for tourists.

Vaci street runs into the Budapest Market building.

This place is also not a single tourist passes - do not leave Hungary from Hungary without the Hungarian salami. Sausages and other meat and non-meat products of Hungarian agriculture are incredible here.

St. Stephen’s Basilica is the largest church in Budapest. Construction began in 1854 and lasted 54 years. The dome has an observation deck. Access to the church itself is free, but you have to pay for the ascent to the dome.
