Szimpla was Budapest's first ruin pub Szimpla was Budapest’s first ruin pub

I remember the thought that flashed through my mind when I walked into my first ruin pub in Budapest.

This is an OH&S disaster, you would never see this in Sydney, or London, or possibly anywhere else for that matter!

That’s because ruin pubs, as the name suggests, lie within dilapidated shells of abandoned buildings. They predominantly sit in the old Jewish quarter which was left to decay after WWII. In any other city there would be a wrecking ball around the corner, but in Budapest some inspired drinkers decided they might be good for something and slowly they have turned into drinking and party meccas.

This neighbourhood now includes dozens of ruin pubs, all characterised by flea market furniture, psychedelic interiors and an intense feeling you’ve just fallen down the rabbit hole.

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

Budapest Cathedral

The cathedral in Budapest is full of interesting artistic sights, columns, archways, gold leaf, carvings, statues, each one more detailed and intricate than the next.    It is the same with the outside of the buildings, everything has been done by the craftsmen of the past, with great attention to detail, as you will see from the outside of the Hungarian State Opera House.
