Isn't it pretty?? Budapest is also home to the largest synagogue in Europe and the fifth largest in the world, the Dohány Street Synagogue. Even more importantly, it's known for its baths and spas. The city has tons of natural water sources and hot springs, and way back when the Turks built these huge communal baths, and I guess the Budapestians liked them so much that they built hotels and spas and huge parks around them.
(that's the Szechenyi bath. Don't ask me how to pronounce that)
So that's where I'm jetting off to this weekend! It'll be the last plane ride I take before the flight home, which is, exactly, three weeks from tomorrow. I'm not counting down, I swear. Just keeping mental track.
