2016 River Cruise - Day 2

We spent an entire day in Budapest touring around before we departing in the evening enroute to Bratislava, Slovakia....

Breakfast at our hotel, pretty ritzy, even for the Ritz...

Crossing the Danube from "Pest" to "Buda" via the Chain Bridge.  Pest is on the east bank of the Danube,  it is where most of the businesses and government activities are located.   "Buda" is on the west bank of the Danube, it is mostly residential.

St. Matthias Church 

The "Fisherman's Bastion"

View of the Hungarian Parliament across the Danube, from "Fisherman's Bastion"

First of many scrumptious dinners on our river-cruise ship, the MS Esprit... :)
