I have planned it for a while to photograph Budapest’s lights and sights in the night. Few days before and later on New Year’s Eve I managed to take some night walks to the Danube with my friends and take some nice photos.
First we took a few shots of the new National Theatre with my friend Máté. Approaching the building from the back entrance we immediately found some views worth taking.
Then we shot some interesting pictures from the park.
We had plenty of plans so we crossed the river to Buda, near the Margit bridge, hoping to catch the light-tram! This year we had missed the tram, but we could take some piccies of the bridge itself as it didn’t move so fast. J
Then we took some pictures of the Parliament and a nice view of the city’s sights and then walked towards the Chain bridge.
We tried to record the theme from several views. Naturally we couldn’t miss the Castle tunnel either. Time flew by fast, our fingers started to turn black so we called it a day.
The next time I visited the Danube on New Year’s Eve with my other friend Norbi. This time we photographed the city from the Pest side, sometimes in thick fog.
Between the Chain bridge and the Margit bridge there is a memorial for the victims who were shot into the Danube during WW2, we took some photos here.
The we visited the most famous sights like the Fishermen’s Bastillon, Matthias Church and the Caste.
Then we took the Parliament from another viewpoint, then said goodbye to the city at the Margit bridge. .
