I have never seen so many policemen at the same time before.
The Ándrássy blvrd was closed for traffic in the Opera area. All streets crossing àndrássy were also closed and no cars were allowed to park. When we went out we noticed the empty street and all the policemen in our street but when we went home again and turned at the Opera this was what we saw:
Since we live in the street behind the Opera we were allowed to go in the closed area and I could take some pictures. The picture face the house opposite the Opera.
Groups of policemen marched ahead and they were riot-equipped. I wondered what they thought might happen?
Behind the Opera this man had a speach. Not so many were listening but he was surrounden by the police. Perhaps it all was about some extreme politics? I don’t know since we don’t speek Hungarian.
Also in our street there are a group of riot-equipped policemen. We came home all right but it was a bit exciting I must say.
There are always something happening in Budapest – but mostly about ART and CULTURE :)
Now I have learnt more about this. Check out the article from BBC.
