12th November, Thursday - Budapest

On Thursday we went to the capital of Hungary, Budapest; it’s a big city with lot of history and lots of beautiful places where we enjoyed as much as we could.
Our day started at 6 o’clock in the morning because we took the bus at half past seven to go to the Budapest.
At first we visited a startup called InePex. They work with technology and their main product is a range of premium GPS trackers. We were talking about how to set up a small company and if we were workers, where we would like to work and other things related to the world of business and marketing.

After that, we went to the Parliament, the most representative building in Hungary. The Hungarian students gave us a description of the building and other places like Széchenyi Lánchíd Bridge (Puente de las Cadenas), which joins together Buda and Pest. Afterwards, we visited Szent István, the tallest building in Budapest with the Parliament and one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen.

In the afternoon, we went shopping around Váci street (Váci Utca) and there we spent almost one hour (not too long for me!!). Later we made a fast tour on the bus seeing other important sites and later we returned to Százhalombatta and we went to a kind of pub, which we called ‘’the green pub’’, and there we spent almost three hours playing table football and pool.

In spite of the fact that every single day was fantastic in Hungary, one of my favourites was Thursday. We laughed a lot and I hope that one day we can return to Budapest to see  one another and stay there longer than only a week.
