Budapest Castle Hill 6th january 2014 PT2

Continuing the last day in Budapest, Jan and i are on Castle Hill heading towards the Fisherman's Bastion.   its come over a bit cloudy at the moment but its still quite warm for January , just into double figures :)
Walking through the courtyard next to the Matthias Church ,having just photographed a Hooded Crow , we marvel at the stunning architecture . the statues are amazing in the central area.

Walking up onto the upper level we get superb views of the turrets and arch windows , its very busy up here today , cant imagine what it must be like in peak season.  i did read somewhere that said you would have no chance of taking pictures without people getting in the way  lol

The view up river towards Margaret bridge and the island mid river.

Here i am in front of the church .

                         Looking through one of the many arch's to the Parliament building.

                                           the front of the Bastion , very elaborate!

                                                                           The inside :)

Here is the view looking towards the Citadel on Gellert hill in the distance to the right of the bridges

                                                                  a weird looking panorama :)

                  Jan in the courtyard as the low sun starts to set producing long shadows

                                                          another couple of  Arch shots :D

             Walking through the village and looking in the small souvenir shops and feeling hungry

We have come to a small restaurant , so as we haven't eaten anything today and its past 2 o'clock we decide to go in here , just a few pics from out side & inside

                                Deep fried chicken sounds good to me, Jan wants the Goulash

                       its really nice in hear , with stone cellars with tables and more upstairs.

               as we come out Jan spots a iron clad statue     "do not touch"   Yes Jan   tut tut :)
