Early Saturday morning was the best time to get to know Budapest, we had the entire city for ourselves while the other tourists were still asleep. We had agreed with the hotel that we can leave the luggage there to wait for the check-in and after that we walked around looking for a breakfast place that would be open early. It was strange to be up so early that there was no place to go for a coffee and cake.

In the afternoon we took a nice nap and headed out to climb a hill and see the city from above. The unpleasant part of being out in the prime time is having to queue to every single place because everyone's on the move and trying to see the same things. I was thinking if Marco Polo, on his famous trip to Asia, experienced the same level of crowdedness or if at his time there were still places that were not full with visitors. In good and in bad traveling has become everyone's favorite pastime and it can be seen in the chronic congestion of the most popular places.

The hotel we booked cost us 60 EUR for a night and was in a really good condition with a small kitchenette and adjoining bathroom. In the end we didn't use the kitchen because what's the point to go on a holiday and still have to cook but it was nice to have the kettle for preparing the all important morning coffee. On Sunday we walked in the suburbs of Budapest and ate delicious sushi. When the bus left for Prague 23:40 I had no difficulty falling asleep in my seat.
