Palace of Buda

Day of Orsolya in Hungary. The name comes from the latin Ursula which means little bear.
Palace of Buda
This is the Palace of Buda. I guess the most characteristic building in the downtown of Budapest or being more exact in Buda. In Pest the Parliament Building is the main attraction. I like the fact that the palace is a public place. Its not a residence of someone very superimportant:) There works the biggest library in Hungary and the National Gallery.

Ah, so impressive and what a wonderful landmark. One of my good friends visited Buda and Pest this past year and can't stop telling me of its wonders. I really must come - and your blog keeps my interest alive.

You asked about whether juvenile prisons work to improve the youth or if they are more like colleges for crime. I'm afraid that much of the time they are more like colleges for crime. The world should really come up with a better idea - being punitive is often so counterproductive.

Impressive architecture. Free access to these magnificent buildings must be mandatory as it favors cultural enrichment of citizens. Good photo. Thanks for sharing it with us.
