On the way up the hill to Buda castle we saw a tree with lots of green fruits like this one. Big as an apple. Do you know the tree?
I also brought my Canon G12 and took some fisheye shots. This is St Isván by the Fisherman’s Bastion.

The lense made the statue a bit funny in proportions.

This walk-about I decided to take pictures of details like door knobs. The president’s office is next to the Buda castle.

The horses are very busy with all tourists. The house in the background is the national archive, I think.

Nice details on this house, isn’t it?
I can recommend the Hungarian dish letcho – I like it a lot and this one was delicious :)

A lovely tour, Birgitta! The photos are great and I love the statue.

Beautiful photos. I wish I could identify the fruit. It reminds me of the Australian custard-apple but of course that wouldn't grow in Hungary, so I have no idea what it is.
I enjoyed the tour, however.

I like the different take on St.Isvan, the distortion adds rather than subtracts from the statue. Great pictures of Buda and I am glad you had a sustaining meal to give you energy for more photo taking.

A very nice post indeed and thank you for sharing it.
