We had a great second day here. People have been telling me to visit Budapest since my friend Ellen and I traveled in Europe almost 20 years ago. It has lived up to all the hype.
We started the morning by going to Hero Square.
Right behind Hero Square is City Park. It is a beautiful, big park with an ice skating rink and the Museum of Agricultural History. Thankfully, I got out of ice skating by offering over priced street donuts.
My time of asking for pics from the kids is running out.
But this park was beautiful. And there were dogs everywhere so we had to make a quick stop to greet them.
We grabbed some lunch (Ryan housed some goulash) and we wanted to walk over the chain bridge to the castle.
We promised no hills today. But….. the incline line was long and the kids loved the challenge of this hill.
At the top, we visited the history of Hungary museum and it was fascinating.
We grabbed a quick bite to eat before heading to the Budapest grand finale…the thermal baths.
There are no cars allowed at all on the island. You can take a city bus however which drops you off right at the front door!
But after just a brief cold walk outside, the most wonderful outdoor baths awaited us!
Next to this giant thermal bath is another thermal bath for lap swimming (which I did not do;)
We stayed until closing time and enjoyed every minute of it! We would highly recommend this to families visiting Budapest.
We caught the bus home, ate some more food, wished our sweet nephew and cousin, Jon a happy 4th birthday and are tucked in for the night.
We had an amazing time in the bomb city of Budapest but are so happy to head “home” to Bratislava tomorrow.
