Day 3.. A short break in Budapest

Today we decided to explore using the hop on hop off bus which we picked up in Andrassy Ut.

Museum of Fine Arts, Heroes Square
We took the tour to Castle District and spent most of the day there, visiting the Hungarian National Gallery, Fishermans Bastian, Matthias Church and generally just wandering around. The views from here looking over the city are amazing.

We stopped for lunch in a fast food cafe, queuing and choosing from a vast range of local dishes.
While waiting to pick up the hop on hop off bus, the heavens opened and we sheltered under a tree to avoid the worst of the downpour.

As we were fairly wet and cold by this time we stayed on the tour bus, passing the State Opera House before returning to the hotel for a well earned siesta.
