From the top of the Citadel, the two ancient cities of Buda and Pest join to form the capital of Hungary: Budapest. The crossroads of Central Europe, the heart of the country lies with the inhabitants of its capital.
he cars are in perfect alignment. One after the other, they move forward and stop continuously, always at the same imperturbable rhythm. In their wake, they leave a stream of light that runs along the entire length of the Erzsébet Bridge and rushes into the city, following the main arteries. The repetition of the movement gives a hypnotic effect and we could stay here for hours watching the heartbeat of the city of Budapest, its pulse. It is like entering the soul of a city, secretly, and being able to see the lives of the people there without them being aware that someone is watching them. It is to be able to rise up and have access to another dimension of space than the one we are used to and that we come across every day. To have the chance to see further away, and yet so close to the detail.
In the distance, the most important buildings and architectural treasures of the city of Pest light up one after the other, as does the historical museum on the Buda side. Formerly two cities separated by the famous Danube, Buda and Pest now form the capital of Hungary. Drowned in a stormy past, Budapest has become a European-level capital city definitely turned towards the future and modernity, without neglecting its rich past.
From the top of the Citadella, which became a symbol of the Hungarian revolution of 1956, the view of the city is unbeatable. The clouds form an ocean that undulates with the wind. In the distance the sun shines one last time with its warm colours before disappearing behind one of Budapest’s countless hills. The bluish colour of the sky is in harmony with the yellowish lights of the city. Budapest is about to spend another night, quietly, without a shadow of a doubt. A first immersion in the Hungarian capital in pictures.
