Arriving at the bridge and admiring its stunning architecture with the statues between the arches .
Its quite dull this morning, but good reflections in the Danube , pity there isn't any sun as it would have made a big difference to the views. But the weather is looking very good for tomorrow :)
The island is accessible via the centre of the bridge , its Sunday morning and very busy here, there are loads of joggers on a purpose built running lane around the island along with plenty of cyclists and tourists.
We have walked on to Margaret island , the first thing we see is this monument in a clearing amongst the trees. in summer and autumn it must look really beautiful here .
Walking around the left hand side of the island with a misty murky view towards the hills in the distance. moving towards the centre of the island we head to the Water tower monument.
Here is the Octagonal Water tower , built in 1911. with what looks like an open air cafe/restaurant around it,(out of view) all closed down for the winter i guess. must be very busy in the hot summers they have here.
walking down the river with views looking down towards the Parliament building in the distance.
love the lamps :)
a last view of Margaret bridge as we walk down towards Parliament building which is fenced off while a new tram station is being built.
This is as close we could get to the Hungarian Parliament buildings, loads of building work and people are waiting to go inside in a large make shift area across the square where the new station is being constructed.
Truly" Magnificent "
Heading back to the apartment now
Time for a drink and cake stop :)
Look at all those cakes :D
the end of a good walk and it looks like the weather has cleared up and going to be a clear night, so i will be able to shoot the floodlit buildings tonight :) Yay
