Our our last day, we had nothing booked. So, we decided to walk down passed the Liberty Bridge and see more sights.
We walked to the CET building which is known by the locals as the Whale building.
We then walked back across the Liberty Bridge heading back towards Gellert Hill.
We ended walking up Gellert Hill towards the Liberty Statute and Citadella. Gellert Hill is a 235 m high hill overlooking the Danube. This is another UNESCO world heritage sites. And it very high up. I was surprised that we managed to do it. A tip take water with you, as we did not and we walked it in the heat which was a mistake !
The Liberty Statue was first erected in 1947 in remembrance of the Soviet liberation of Hungary from Nazi forces during World War II. The 14 metre tall bronze statue stands atop a 26 metre pedestal and holds a palm leaf. You get amazing views from the top.
After this we walked back towards the shopping district for a bite to eat and work out the best route to the Jewish Quarter.
This was where we headed next and this was another nice area to visit and again another UNESCO world heritage site. I would recommend Budapest to anyone as it is such a wonderful place to be. I so enjoyed my time here.
