The Many Faces of Budapest (part V)

Despite the sorry state of many buildings in the downtown area of Budapest there certainly are a lot of beautiful houses around. A simple renovation of the façade does a lot to the appearance of the building (no, really it does, d’oh!) but the more modern buildings here are way much prettier than the new buildings in Finland.

I am not quite sure how old the building on the left is but it most certainly looks good to my eye. The building on the right side on the other hand… Well it does, once again, give a good example of the contrast between the (state of the) buildings here. It looks nice and old and all that but unfortunately is quite dilapidated. Maybe it will someday be renovated to its former glory. But hopefully the foundation loses the turquoise colour in the process. Posted by Picasa
