Thursday Doors : 28 April 2016 : Budapest Doors


Budapest in Hungary has fantastic buildings, most of them in perfect symmetry, and most of them with wide doors, dating back to the time of horses and carriages, when the doors had to be wide enough for the horse and carriage to drive through to the courtyard, and possible stables at the back.   In fact, I have seen cars driving through some of these very wide doors,to their own private parking space!   As I took so many photos of doors for Norm, I am attaching some in a gallery.

You will notice that a lot of the doors are flanked by statues, holding up the floors above.  Actually, a lot of the statues were of women – who says we are the weaker sex!!

Don’t forget to vist Norm for more Thursday doors
