Fairy tale or glass palaces?



Budapest looks like being in a fairy tale. Historical buildings, all the famous features were built in the late XIXth Century. In the local regulations they prohibit to build high buildings, no glass palaces, no skyscrapers. Are they nessecary in a metropolice? I dont think so, though when I was in Shanghai this summer I was totally impressed by its downtown. But in fact not the buildings make a city modern or oldfashioned. Rather the attitude of its leaders and its people.
I love my city with this romantic, historical view. Like in a tail....like in the sleeping beauty. But could you tell to the prince that we are waiting for him to wake up the princess with his kiss?

I still remember my journey to Budapest. The walks through the streets, which remeber so many intersting events.
The truth is, that not buildings create an atmosphere of the city.
My town was destroyed and ruined during the Second World War, but I still feel the atmosphere of my city, hometown
