Summer on the Chain Bridge-Festival and Souvenir
June 11, 2012
It has only been 2 days since my last blog and I have had such an amazing time since then! Yesterday, I attended a festival on the Chain Bridge in Budapest. The bridge was built in the 19th century and the first link from Buda county to Pest county. The festival was called Summer on the Chain Bridge and features music, traditional Hungarian craftsmen, and food. As I was enjoying the festival and walking across the bridge, one stand caught my eye and I fell in love with this one piece of work, a simple wood carving of a flower on a tray, I thought that it was the perfect souvenir to bring home and remember Budapest. The Chain Bridge festival helped me understand some of the Hungarian culture and handicraft better. I have five more days left in Hungary.
