The Danube River runs right through the center of Budapest, dividing the city into two parts-Buda and Pest. Since the city links western and eastern Europe, Budapest has long had an intriguing history. River ships sailing the Danube always stopover in Budapest for the day, docking in a perfect place, with a marvelous view of Fishermen's Bastion and the Palace in Buda on one side and the downtown area of Pest on the other. The ships often wait until after dark to sail away since the city lights on the river are truly memorable.
Budapest has many fascinating sites on both sides of the river. Many of these sites are diverse, with fascinating histories. They range from churches such as St. Stephen's and Matthias to monuments, parks, and beautiful bridges across the Danube.
Since the ships dock conveniently near many of the tourist areas, passengers can explore the city on their own. In addition, river cruises usually include an overview tour of the city as part of the fare.

il Danubio è uno dei tuoi soggetti preferiti e questa volta lo unisci a Pest, ovvero la parte bassa di Budapest tutta distesa sulla pianura.
Nella foto il fiume disegna una bella diagonale che rende vivace l'immagine.
Buona nitidezza e colori naturali completano degnamente la composizione.
Ciao e buona giornata

Beautiful view of the city, there are so many interesting buildings in this shot that really catch my eye. in particular that train station looks excellent! I really like the river cruisers too, and you have composed the river perfectly from the diagonal in the image.
Beautiful light and colour throughout!
All the best

Bonjour, cher Ovidiu,
Prendre de la hauteur pour mieux contempler la ville et son fleuve.
Difficile de trouver meilleur emplacement pour restituer toute la richesse du panorama.
La ville se modernise sérieusement.

a splendid sight on the city and the Danube, where the river ships adds a dynamic touch.
A sharp and deep image, with a good management of light and colors.
I like a lot the interesting architectural structure on river shore.
It's a nice work.

Another nice pov on this town, Good effect with the diagonal of the river, beautiful light capture and colors, tfs.

You have beautiful pictures overviewing this town, taken on excellent high POV's.
Near the riverbank I see here a building with a very curious and fascinating roof. I don't think it's the railway station because I remember that it is further away from the Danube.
Between the various neighborhoods we discover many green areas.
Best regards, Paul

A breathtaking shot from the famous city with the eyes to meanders around to savour bags of details. The feel is thoroughly lively, a post card material that makes for a very eyecatching image. The compo, colors and lighting work well in your favour adding a big lift to the overall scene. A pretty looking shot, Congrats, TFS.
