After our refreshing lunch at Anna Café we went inside the Dohány Street Synagogue.  It wasn't what we had expected. A huge market with fresh fruits (you know there is a paprika in Hungary that's called "TV paprika"?), clothes in old styles, old men writing checks and fresh juice. And a whole lot of butchers too! You could also go up the stairs and walk around there.

We just followed the street and after many shops and ice cream stalls (they eat a whole lote of ice there!) we stumbled upon the Congregatio Jesu Church. The Church had some nice ceilings, but a large part was in dire need of renovation.

We saw some cool statues on the street and a funny gargoyle like sign at a restaurant. The statue pictured above the gargoyle actually had a whole lot of spikes and was covered in netting to prevent birds from shitting al over it. (You can't really see the netting on the picture, but it was fully covered.)

The last two pictures of a square with lots of restaurants and the Hard Rock Café. You could also get a bike taxi!

  1. I love gargoyles. I read a book once about gargoyles in Paris (can't remember the name!). It was fascinating.
    Lovely pictures! :)
