Budapest: District VII A Photographic Tour Of Budapest's Most Fascinating District

In Destinations, Hungary, Photography by Nick NomiLeave a Comment

We recently visited Budapest for the first time and I was most struck by two things. First, the incredible beauty of the Danube and the magnificent architecture that lines it on both sides, and second – the gritty suburban District VII – home to streets coloured with street art, Budapest’s excellent ruin bars forged from the literal ruined architecture of the city’s past, the Jewish community and some stunning architecture that encompasses everything from opulent synagogues to the aforementioned ruin bars.

We took a stroll through the streets on a rather grey winters morning recently – and what follows is what we found.

We loved Budapest and will undoubtedly return to explore it at length in the near future. For now though, take a peak at our archives and keep up to date with us on twitter, facebook and instagram.

These images of Budapest: District VII are part of a series of travel photos that we post to highlight the unique, less explored aspects of travel. Click here to see the whole series.
