The old city of Buda

Buda is very different than Pest. Or at least it was - but one is much older and full of nice, expensive houses, and the other is more spread out. They were joined years and years ago, but they are still quite different. Once we got to the top, we walked along the cobblestoned roads, which were nice and narrow, and full of cute little houses. There was a really good restaurant, where we stopped into mainly to keep warm - but to also have Matzoball soup!
We wandered around, checked out the Fisherman's Bastion and Matthias' Church, which has this beautiful mosaic roof. I really liked the Fisherman's Bastion area - it was all made of amazing stone turrets and these pretty "windows" where you could see all
over the city. It was a really nice part of town and we liked how it was closed to traffic, so it was nice to just wander down the streets, and check out some of the cute little gift shops. We ended up wandering around and back to our cute little air B and B before we headed out to dinner!
