Dancing Dolphins in the Streets of Budapest
Submitted by Amber on 2006-12-29 02:04:21 (via www.ericandjoan.com)
Not old but very aged buildings, gravel parking lots, weeds between the cracks where there was pavement, faded signs missing letters – that’s Hungary. Although I think many things have changed by now. Also, see how lack of sleep affects your communication, how a full stomach makes things brighter plus other curious things about Budapest.

well, to be honest, i am biased since i live here in budapest...but what the guys put down was more or less the hungarian reality...of course as a tourist, it is a little different since they try to compare it to their own country... i think it is an honest and accurate description of the city anyway:)

Hi, I liked the article, it's really inspiring.
But is Budapest that quite always? or was it an unique case?

it comes from the finno-ugrian family of languages.
(but it doesn't resemble to the Finnish)

Hi, yes, there are a lot of aged buildings but there are also a lot of new... (city centers) budapest haven't got enough money it's true but it's an exceting city. if you have never been there you can't imagine that...
i live in a small town 150 km from budapest so it's a bit big for me but i like it!!! there are so many beautiful places...
hm, the hungarian language is very different from the english or the german..
but it isn't slavic.

hello everyone!
so, to sum up things discussed here i'd say that budapest is a city with lots of sights to see, it's kinda ancient in some parts, and i think that those pictures depict the truth.the only thing i wouldn't come here is the attitude of ppl.it can really get on one's nerves after some time,so you're okay as long as you stay in the "Old Town" or what do they call it.going to the outer parts of the city you'll be disappointed,believe me;)
happy adventuring here in hungary!!

This article is very true, but from a tourist's point of view. I live in budapest. There are so many beautiful places. The hungarian language is very hard especially for tourists. People say it is the most difficult language in the world. Very few people can speak foreign languages. But i think Budapest is worth a visit.

Hello, I liked the article too.
I think it is Budapest really. I never saw Pittsburg, so I can't do similar.
If you are interested by Budapest you must see it.
The places those write on in this article are really beauty.

Hi everyone, I'm a girl from Hungary. I don't live in Budapest just near the city but I spend many time there. And I think every cities has the own interest parts, so Budapest has it too. I think if someone read this, maybe he/she imagines the city in another way than it is. Budapest is not so bad place, it is not Madrid or any other city, there are old buildings but news too. Here the buildings aren't so tall, maybe this is the one of the things which makes it interesting to others. Here the people are traditionalist and it seems from the image of Budapest or other hungarian cities. And I don't think that the city is too calm but who knows, it just depends on that when and where you are :) So if anyone have ever been interested in Budapest, come here and make sure of these things. Hopefully he/she won't have bad experiences, however it's true that this can happen with anyone, anywhere and anytime. :)
So good adventuring in Hungary! :D
