Ten random things: September 2

Ten things to do next time you're in Budapest:

  1. Stroll along the Riverside Promenade at sunset
  2. Tour Margaret Island in a horse-drawn carriage
  3. Ease your aches and pains in the thermal baths at the Széchenyi fürmő
  4. Talk to the animals at the Zoological Gardens
  5. Admire the collection of Netherlandish paintings at the Szépmûvészeti Múzeum
  6. Attend a performance of the Hungarian National Ballet at the Állami Operaház
  7. Nosh on Hungarian pastries at the Gerbeaud Café on Vörösmarty tér
  8. Take a sightseeing cruise down the Danube
  9. Venerate the Holy Right Hand of King St. Steven at the Basilica of St. Steven
  10. Enjoy the spectacular aerial view of Buda from the top of Gellért Hill in the Duna-Ipoly National Park

My Hungarian roommate left an English-language guidebook to Budapest on the coffee table in the living room. Pretty city!
