Travel Photo Friday: Brilliant Budapest

Today's photo comes from journalist Nick Coppack who took the pic on a recent trip to Budapest. Let's hear more from the man himself....

No trip to Budapest is complete without a walk up Gellert Hill. Situated on the banks of the Danube River on the Buda side of the city, it rises 140 metres into the air and offers stunning views of Pest. A maze of paths (take your pick!) lead up the hill from Gellert Square to a picture-perfect summit that features a number of sculptures, including Hungary's own Statue of Liberty (commemmorating the liberation of Hungary from the Nazis) and, as this picture shows, Bishop Gellert, who played a vital role in converting Hungarians to Christianity around 1000AD.

Thanks for the contribution Nick, it's much appreciated and I love the photo and the story that goes with it! If you'd like to see your own photo here, then why not send it to the email address on my contact page, along with a short paragraph about where the photo was taken. Have a great weekend!
