During a cruise I made last summer on the Danube river, I had the opportunity to visit several cities such as Vienna in Austria, Salzburg in Germany, and Budapest in Hungary.
Budapest is one of the most beautiful cities I have ever seen. It is divided in two areas on both sides of the Danube river : Buda (on the higher side of the city), and Pest (on the lower side). 9 bridges are crossing the Danube river.
The Vajdahunyad Royal Castle is located on a hill in the Buda area. From the Castle we have a wonderful view on the river and the Pest part of the city.
The Emperor François-Joseph and his wife, the Empress "Sissi", were crowned in the Matthias church in 1867.
