Europe - Hungary - Magyarország - Budapest - Capital City - UNESCO World Heritage Site - Hungarian Parliament Building - Seat of the National Assembly of Hungary on eastern banks of River Danube - Iconic famous Hungarian landmark during winter time with floating ice on Dunaj river

 

I traveled to Budapest for the rare sight of floating ice on Danube river, which is something very unique to see in most European capitals. It somehow became some kind of mystery, because when I checked webcams facing Danube river in Bratislava (which is also situated on this famous European river prior to Budapest) there was not a single piece of ice, during all this time when it was floating through Budapest (for about 2-3 weeks). I tried to ask locals for explanation but they seemed to be equally confused as they assumed (as I did) that the ice floats through various cities, including Bratislava or Vienna, before reaching Budapest.

 

So for now, my take on it is, that Budapest is located on border with Antarctica or Greenland or there is a ice factory just on the border of the capital and it occasionally (once in 5-10 years) produces these giant pieces of ice as a rare tourist attraction ;)))

 

Unfortunately I was too late to arrive to this "Ice Bonanza" as I was traveling in Oman prior to that. Ice started to melt the next day after my arrival therefore I didnt get that many chances to capture this unique sight.
