Art in Budapest is not just limited to museums. Throughout the city, there’s interesting street art to be found. This makes Budapest very fun to wander around. We never know what we’ll find beyond the bend or on the next block. Between the great architecture, street art, and sweeping river views, we’ve enjoyed exploring over the last couple of months.
My initial plan was to make a single post detailing all of the architecture and art, but I just have too many pictures I want to share, so consider this a bonus. A Bonus Nachos bonus post, if you will. I guess that’s bound to happen when we stay in such a gorgeous city for months at a time. And you know I love towns with street art. Here are my favorite shots.
The street art isn’t just limited to official murals. There’s plenty of talented graffiti art too. Some of these are mind-blowingly good. In particular, I love the juxtaposition of graffiti tags in front of classical architecture. The temporary nature of graffiti art also appeals to me. Many of these artists put a lot of time and effort into something that will soon be destroyed with a coat of paint. I view it as a reminder to enjoy things while they last.
