I live in Budapest Hungary and I like photography so I started a Budapest photo blog with useful info about Budapest. I think it is useful for visitors, tourists and anybody is interested in Budapest in Central Eastern Europe. You can visit my Budapest site here: Budapest Blog I started with the Hungarian Parliament. I took many photos about the Parliament in sunshine and by night as well. I followed to make Budapest Photos about the famous Chain Bridge and the Budapest – Buda Castle and the Palace. I took some photos about the Budapest Citadel an the Hungarian National Theatre. The theatre is a new building and it looks great by night. I took some photos about the Palace of arts Budapest building this is located next to the National Theatre and at night it changes its color. So visit my Budapest Hungary blog and see for yourself the great photos.
