Its one of the European cities that has always interested me and so finally I went and thoroughly enjoyed the bustling, cosmopolitan city - fabulous architecture, delicious food, easy to get around on public transport - just what I want from a city.
I travelled on what is reportedly the most scenic tram journey in Europe - tram 2 goes along the side of the Danube and they have kept some of the older model trams to add to the atmosphere
and I enjoyed a boat along the river - I chose the public ferry which does the same route as the fancy dinner cruises
and I luxuriated in one of the thermal baths which take advantage of local hot water thermal springs
and I sat by a very poignant memorial to those who were killed on the edge of the river during the Second World War
I'm just sharing a few tastes here as I took several hundred photos that I need to sort through - some good snap collections in there so I promise more details then and some more thoughts about the city and what I saw and did then as I sort through those too.
Off to catch up on laundry, food shopping and blog reading now. Hope you all have a good week
