The Golden Pearl of Danube 多瑙河上的金色珍珠

The Pearl of Danube, is the nickname of Budapest, where it's also best known as a "Golden City". It was my first time to see pearl in gold and this city earned this title for real. It seems like there's no any other colours of lights but gold only. I like how the Palace of Parliament Hungary stands out on Danube at night. It just looks like it was the only thing that shines in the dark. The best place to stare at it has to be the opposite side of the waterfront (Metro stop Batthyany ter), as you'd be able to see it from far and right in front of your eyes.

「多瑙河的珍珠」是Budapest 布達佩斯的外號,同時也有「黃金城」之稱。這可以說是我第一次看到金色的珍珠,而布達佩斯絕對配得上這兩個稱號!因為在晚上的時候,我好像真的只看到金黃色的燈光!晚上在多瑙河上的匈牙利議會宮真的非常閃亮,就好像是全世界只剩下了它!你們記得一定要到河的對面(地鐵站 Batthyany ter)來好好看看它。

Let's get down to the famous Szechenyi Chain Bridge, where you can also see the Buda Castle on the left. I found the bridge so pretty and fascinating, but the castle? Nah. LOL I was here around 7 at night and the lights from the bridge weren't fully on until 8pm. It was worth the wait although it would be a lot better if I knew this in advance... haha

現在來到了這裡挺有名的Szechenyi Chain Bridge 塞切尼鏈橋,在這你還可以看到Buda Castle 布達城堡喔。我覺得這條橋真的挺好看的,不過那個城堡就很一般了⋯⋯ 哈哈!我到這的時候大概是晚上七點,等了差不多一個小時後,橋上的燈才慢慢地亮起來。雖然景色很美,很值得一等,但是如果早點知道,不用等這麼久那會更好囉哈哈!

Fun Fact: I first came to Szechenyi Chain Bridge and I thought the castle on the opposite was the signature of Hungary "Palace of Parliament Hungary"... and I was so confused... because nothing looks like the pictures that I saw everywhere on the internet. And I'm still not sure why I kept taking lots of pictures of it in case I missed it. LOL

事實是:我第一站是先到了塞切尼鏈橋,然後看到了對面的城堡,便以為它是代表著匈牙利的議會宮⋯⋯ 當時的我覺得很困惑⋯⋯ 因為明明就不像是我在網上到處都看到的東西喔。重點是,我怕錯過了,儘管很懷疑,先拍了照片再說吧!

Make sure you go on the bridge and have a nice walk in the evening after having a fantastic dinner. I even managed to take some nice long exposures even without a tripod. Guess how? You should be able to find out some hints from the picture above. Hehe.
