Conclusion of our self-guided tour of Budapest

Flying buttresses on the outside of the retaining wall (opposite the side where Mary was walking in earlier photos)

 

Path leading to exit from castle yard to Chain Bridge

Chain Bridge, leaving Buda Castle toward Pest


View as Mary and I walked across the bridge. You can see the chain structure of the suspension "cables"

Another expensive dinner we should have had included with our room

Harlequin statue with Buda Castle across the river

Later in the evening, the folk entertainers were replaced by a classical orchestra -- they played well.

Close-up of pretty players.  The brass section was seated in the last rows.

Appreciative audience in the square.

Mother and daughter enjoy ice cream next to the orchestra. Mary and I had beer at one of the tables in the background.
