It’s easy to forget that Budapest was under Ottoman rule for over 150 years in the Middle Ages.
There’s plenty of evidence if you look around though, such as the tomb of Gül Baba in District II.
It’s recently reopened and is surrounded by rose gardens and water features. There’s also a small museum staffed by some really helpful folks.
Gül Baba (a.k.a. Father of Roses) was a dervish poet from what is now Turkey. He died in Buda in 1541 and his tomb was built soon after.
This statue was gifted by the Turkish government and is the work of Metin Yurdanur (2000).

Actually, I’m looking for models. I’m ready to start shooting in Budapest (weekends preferable), so if you want or you know who wants, just write me in direct. We could make your portfolio better. Check more photos @max.radomski
Best best best and most favourite city = Budapest!
They use the Hungarian Forint as currency in Budapest, and early in the morning we faced the embarrassment of being told to get off the bus because we didn’t and couldn’t buy the ticket xD The first impression was very Bombay-like, the roads and the commercial parks, but getting to our hostel was extremely messy and we sure felt like the place we’d ended booking was a mistake until we got there finally. The receptionist was from Transylvania, and was really helpful. We freshened up and left for Heroes’ Square, the Schlenzy Baths and another castle, all of which were beautiful beyond limits, with clear blues skies and warm Colors of fall acting as perfect adornments. (^the pictures needed no editing, at all!) We’d taken the metro which had the historical significance of being the first electric-driven line ever! It was such a happy day overall, what with beauty all around. In the evening we left for a ride in tram 2, which is said to have the best scenic views of any tram in the world, which of course felt true. With a view of the Hungarian Parliament and the Chain bridge over the Danube, Budapest felt like the city of *pretty yellow lights*. After a walk, we sat by the water for a long time, just soaking in the beauty of all that surrounded us, post which we left for dinner (pizza after so long!, that too with freshly ground pepper) and then left for our final stop if the day, the Budapest eye. We returned to the hostel and spent some time in the ruin pub observing people of various nationalities including cool Indian aunties chilling out, goals ahaha xD
Someone was a very good pup! Thanks to @flash_kutyapekseg Reynard had a feast! He got to try the carrot pupcake, the bacon biscuits and oh boy, he enjoyed them so much! 😋 We gladly recommend these handmade all organic dog treats for Christmas or for your pup’s birthday! They are a hit! ...............................
Valaki nagyon jó volt! Habzsi-dőzsi a @flash_kutyapekseg jóvoktából! Rey megkóstolta a répás pupcake-et és a baconös kutyakekszet, és imádta őket! 😋 Karácsonyra vagy kutya szülinapra el sem tudunk képzelni jobb jutalmat ezeknél a kézzel, csak természetes alapanyagokból készült falatoknál! Nálunk óriási sikerük volt!
