Duna

Day of Miksa in Hungary. Time ago it was the nick version of Miklós but somehow became a different name.
duna
Actually its an old photo. I took it long time ago with a not too good camera. Spite of the low quality I like this photo and its colors because it shows Budapest from the Gellért Hill. Its the river Duna (Danube) which separates Buda from Pest. Guess which side is visible on the photo? Pest or Buda?:)
Take this photo as an intorduction...and some later when I will have time I will post new ones with better quality:)
dear ALL!
Thank you for the nice comments. The winners are those who said PEST is visible on the photo. Easy to remember...Buda is the part where you can find the hills. Pest is totally flat. And they are connected with these "hyphons" as John mentioned and James r is such an expert of Budapest that he even knows the name of the bridges:) Congratulation!

That is a good picture, the tones and composition of the panorama give it an elegant feel. Nice one.

I just like to think the bridge is a - ( hyphon ) between the two words, Buda - Pest.

Thanks for the comment. The light in this photo is amazing! This is looking toward the Pest side from the Buda side, right? The Elizabeth Bridge is in the foreground with the Chain Bridge in the background? Budapest was the greatest city I visited.

I've just discovered your blog and will be back to see more of your city.

This is such a beautiful view of your city even with the "lesser quality" camera.
