Budapest part III


Yesterday was one boring day. The biggest dilemma for me was when to make an appointment at a hairdresser. I've found a little time to choose photos for the third post from Budapest. This post will be dedicated to my impressions and (hopefully) to spread useful advices. I liked the city and my recommendation is to visit it during the summer because it is more beautiful than during the winter. Although our guide said that Budapest lives of two holidays eighth of March and New Year. For me the city seemed much more alive last August than this winter. Pay attention to pickpocketers , because they are around all year long (as in most capitals). The currency of Hungary is the forint, the exchange rate varies, so it did not surprise us that we got more money on second January than 31st December. Effect of currency is reflected in the price, so winter discount is not as big as in other countries where I was shopping. Unfortunately, we had only two hours for shopping during the first day and two hours during the last day of our trip . I bought a skirt in Stradivarius and that's all, this is mostly because I do not like shopping under pressure. The first day we were in the shopping center Arena Plaza that everyone say it is the best shopping center in Budapest, to me it did not leave such an impression. Unlike him WestEnd is huge and has many more stores, but I was literally sick from the heat and crowd, so the magic of shopping in it I did not feel. As for the traditional cuisine I do not like goulash and I had no desire to try it. I've been eatting in the Italian restaurants and some fast food  (I love KFC). We were also in a small town near Budapest named St. Andrea and there is a wonderful museum of marzipan. The sculptures are fascinating, see for yourself .

Juče je bio jedan prilično dosadan dan. Najveća dilema mi je bila da se odlučim za termin kod frizerke. Uglavnom, našla sam malo vremena da odaberem fotografije za treći post iz Budimpešte. Ovaj post će biti posvećen mojim utiscima i (nadam se) korisnim savjetima. Meni se grad dopada, a moja preporuka je da ga posjetite tokom ljeta jer je ljepši nego tokom zime. Iako je naš vodič rekao da Budimpešta živi za dva praznika 8. mart i Novu godinu, meni je grad izgledao puno življe prošlog avgusta nego ove zime. Obratite pažnju na džeparoše, jer ih ima u svako doba godine (kao i u većini metropola). Valuta je forinta, kurs zamjene varira, tako da nas nije iznenadilo da smo više novca dobili 2. januara nego 31. decembra. To se reflektuje i na cijene, tako da zimsko sniženje i nije baš veliko kao u drugim državama gdje sam shoppingovala. Nažalost, imali smo samo 2 sata prvi i dva sata poslednji dan za shopping. Ja sam kupila suknju u Stradivarius-u i to je sve. Ne volim shopping pod pritiskom. Prvi dan smo bili u shopping centru Arena Plaza za koji svi kažu da je najbolji u Budimpešti, ali na mene nije ostavio takav utisak. Za razliku od njega, WestEnd je ogroman i ima mnogo više prodavnica. Ali meni je doslovno pozlilo od vrućine i gužve, tako da čari shoppinga u njemu nisam osjetila. Što se tiće tradicionalne kuhinje ja ne volim gulaš, nisam imala želju ni da ga probam. Držala sam se talijanske kuhinje i nekih fast food restorana (obožavam KFC). Bili smo i u jednom  gradiću blizu Budimpešte Sv. Andrea gdje se nalazi predivan muzej marcipana. Skulpture su fascinantne, uvjerite se i sami.
