Budapest and Its Marvelous Architecture

Since I seem to be focusing on the incredible architecture here in Budapest, I felt it was time to start a sub-gallery for some of the many random buildings that I photograph. For many more stunning examples of better-known Hungarian architecture plus more of the city and people, please visit my main Budapest gallery at http://www.pbase.com/helenpb/budapest. There is also much architecture from around the country at http://www.pbase.com/helenpb/around_hungary

NOTE: NEWEST ITEMS ARE AT THE BEGINNING.
