Merchandise at the Great Central Market (Nagy Vásárcsarnok)
Aside Buda Castle, the peculiar Halászbástya (Fisherman’s bastion) offers wide views on the city. The location name comes from the tradition of the guild of fishermen, which defended the city walls. Its seven towers represent the seven Magyar tribes that founded modern Hungary.
Life is filmed at Heroes’ Square, where statues feature the Seven chieftains of the Magyars tribes. The monumental square celebrates the thousandth anniversary of the foundation of the Hungarian state in 896.
Not only life is celebrated in Budapest. On the Pest side, close to the parliament, dozens of bronze shoes are placed at the shores of Danube. This is a memorial to the mass murders operated by members of the Hungarian national socialist party Arrow Cross between 1944-1945. Victims were brought here, shot and bodies left falling into the Danube.
So my dear, who would have said it after all the good we had together?
Heavy burdens pulled down the curtains on our love
The vows we took could not keep together what was already split
Our tracks separate now, what went parallel now diverges in the warmth light of our last Greek sunset
I am now looking for the happiness that you could not give me
I wish you the passion you could not have from me anymore
Goodbye, my Ariadne.
