After lunch I had time for a guided tour of the city. Our first stop was the Synagogue. Hungary had one of the largest Jewish populations in Europe before World War II, and the Synagogue in Budapest is one of the largest in the world:

Our next stop was St. Stephen’s Bisilica. We had a half hour to get out and walk around:

“The second biggest circus in Budapest.” (The biggest, according to our witty tour guide, is Parliament.)

In and around Millennium Square, also known as the Heroes’ Square:

The Castle on the Buda side. A bit touristy now, but an architectural gem with a great view of the River and the Pest side:

The Hungarian Parliament, as seen from the Castle:
