Budapest Day 3


Woke up to a rainy day in Budapest, and thought I'd go to a museum, but I found out that most everything was closed because it was All Saint's Day. So I took the metro to Hero's Square which is at the end of Pest's great boulevard, Andrassy ut, and at the entrance to the City Park. In its center stands the Millennnium Monument, and around the base are equestrian statues of historical Hungarian Magyars. In front of the pillar is the Hungarian War Memorial.


Then I got the metro back to the Hungarian State Opera House for the 3:00 tour of this gorgeous opera house with its marble and frescos decor, and gorgeous gilded interior.
