Szamoz Gourmet Palace


Entrance
A few pictures are not enough to conjure up experience of sweet delicacies that are offered at this restaurant. We accidentally discovered it and returned back for more each day, twice a day. Since we practically lived off sweets, this time we didn't try  the famous Hungarian goulash; "sweet sin" OMG who needs goulash.
The service and staff are excellent. Prices are very reasonable.
It was a hot summer weather even though it was October and we were sitting outside, but when I went to the rest room I saw the interior of the cafe, beautiful, clean, neat... really  gentlemanly.


                   I recommend!

Hilton Budapest Hotel - Castle distirict

Entrance
view from room

Perfect hotel in Buda. This is,'t the first time that I was placed in it. I was here seven years ago and it's equally beautiful and perfect today as it was then. The rooms are exceptional, I had a view of Pest and Fishemrmen's bastion, beautiful. And what to say about neatness and cleanliness, service, stuff..... great. Breakfast is excellent, the staff extremely friendly ... I have no complaints, I am writing this just to persuade you to choose this hotel when you decide to go to Budapest. Perfect!

Sokol grad - Sokol Tower


This fort found itself under Dubrovnik rule in 1420 and was immediately submitted to further construction – rebuilding of certain parts, strengthening of others, arming and general maintenance. This fort survived unscathed the big earthquake of 1667. It is not mentioned in the 1672 archives as a military complex and it was probably abandoned around that time. As was customary in the region, the locals used the stones of the fort to build their homes and smaller walls, so Fort Sokol was heavily deconstructed. The ruins of the fort have been placed under state protection and are maintained in their present condition. This is a bit information I collected and I actually I don't know almost anything about this valuable monument. It was restored and opened to visitors last year.


The first nice, and not too hot, day I chose to visit it and I'm really glad I did it. This is admirable!
