Places and Activities

I visited the Buda Castle, The Chain Bridge, and Matthias Church. I also participated in a holiday commemorating the death of King Stephen on August 20th and I went to the Annual Budapest Spring Festival to see the art exhibits and musical events and dramas.

During the summer months I would wear lightweight clothing and during the winter months I would wear raincoats and sometimes jackets.
