One further game I was allowed to visit on the journey. This time I only took the bus and changed once to get to the 20th district of Budapest.
It worked perfectly again. Public transport is extremely good. In addition, you no longer have to pay any additional fees for using Internet on your mobile phone in other European countries. You simply just type in your desired destination on Google and it shows you immediately different possibilities to reach your destination from your current position. It couldn’t be simpler.
After a few minutes walk I reached the stadium in the very rural suburb. The Stadium of ESMTK is just a stunning beauty. It has an old main tribune painted in club coulors with terraces next to it. On the other side they also have built a new roof. They even tried to make the roof match the grandstand and I think they did it well. I definitely recommend a visit here.
Here I met Tim again and we watched the game together. We saw a fierce duel. There were many fouls and therefore many match interruptions. Shortly before the end, ESMTK scored the equaliser and the home crowd could still cheer.
After the game I said goodbye to Tim again and drove back to the hotel.
On Monday Sektion Indonesia an me spent the whole day in Palatinus Strandfürdő an outdoor swimming pool on Margaret Island in the middle of the Danube. It was also St. Stephen’s Day a Hungarian national holiday and in the evening we enjoyed the big fireworks on the Margaret Bridge together with a few drinks and thousands of people on the streets, bridges and at the edge of the Danube. A beautiful conclusion to our Budpest holiday.
For me Budapest is one of the best cities in Europe. The city beautiful, clean and safe. There is so much to see and experience. The location on the Danube alone offers many wonderful views. There are also many good photographic motifs such as the Old Town, the Fisherman’s Bastion high over town, large avenues, squares and parks and countless historical buildings. Public transport is very well organised and easy to use. English is widely spoken. Everything is very visitor friendly. It is also comparatively cheap, especially for Western Europeans. For football fans there are many interesting stadiums and fan scenes to visit. Here you will find new modern arenas and beautiful old East European stadiums. Budapest I can recommend without reservation!
