Puzzled out the land of Rubik’s cube

Puzzled out the land of Rubik’s cube

It’s the birthplace of Rubik’s cube. Ballpoint pen. And vitamins. I’m talking about Hungary. I went to Budapest, the capital of Hungary, to attend our company, Sigtunabygden’s three-day kick-off in 2006. I heard that three days in Budapest was cheaper for the company than a conference in Sweden. We were billeted at a nice hotel in the middle of the city, and ate at luxury restaurants with live entertainment. We felt spoiled, appreciated. Here’s what we saw in Budapest for three days: 1. The Danube River: the longest river in the European Union. I saw this river even in Austria, Slovakia and Germany. 2. Heroes’ square: one of the important squares in the city. 3. The Hungarian Parliament Building: it’s so huge you’ll hardly miss it. It’s the best known building in the city. 4.The Fisherman’s bastion: this building was huge and chalk-white it looked like a fairy-tale castle so I thought it was a royal building. 5. Buda Castle: the Royal palace, which is a world heritage site. 6. The Chain Bridge: or the Budapest bridge. If San Francisco has the Golden Gate Bridge, then Budapest has the Chain Bridge. It’s so important it even has a lion guarding it. hehe 7. Gellert Baths: Whatever you, don’t miss to go to a bath house in Budapest.  Budapest has lots, and oh what magnificent bath houses!  Have at least one in your itinerary! It’s the Turks invasion that introduced bath houses in the country. 8. Margaret Island: this is a nice park located on an island on Danube. No vehicles were allowed to pass here. So we took a leisurely walk...
