Pictures from Budapest during the coronavirus!

Hungary is in nationwide quarantine. People can go for a walk, but they need to keep a 2m distance to other people. They can go to work and they can purchase groceries and medicines. But, with most people staying inside all day, and no tourists in Budapest, the streets are almost empty.

We visited some of the most popular tourist locations in Budapest to see what they look like during the coronavirus quarantine. Here you can see the pictures we made during our little excursion.

Still sunshine in Budapest

The sun is still shining in Budapest and October has so far been a great month to visit Budapest.

A general advice is though to bring warm clothes as the wind can feel extremely cold, even when the sun is shining. And as the sun goes down it can get and feel really cold.

One of the coldest places on a windy day is the Gellert Hill and beneath this text you can see a picture from the liberty monument there.

Pictures taken from Gellert Hill (by night)

Earlier this week we had a guided tour with a nice group of dutch people, and we reached the Gellert Hill by around 6.30. It was still quite bright, and no lights were turned on in Budapest. But then, around 6.50 the city turned into another one, almost like magic! The lights were turned on, and Budapest as we all love it became a reality. Below you can see some of the pictures we made.
