SIGHTSEEING IN BUDAPEST– VÁROSNÉZÉS BUDAPESTEN
Wife:I’ve just read Mary and Daniel Smith’s e-mail and imagine they’re coming to Hungary next month for a twelve-day holiday.
Husband:I’m so happy to hear that. We had the time of our life when we stayed with them last year. They were marvellous hosts I enjoyed their hospitality so much. Are they going to stay with us?
Wife: I hope so, but I’m not sure. I would like to spend a lot of time with them though and show them everything that is worth seeing in town.
Husband:Is it going to be their first visit to Hungary?
Wife:Yes, and they don’t speak Hungarian except for some words I taught them last summer.
Husband:We could start with the traditional sights, like the Parliament, Heroes’ Square, the Funicular, Buda Castle, Fishermen’s Bastion, the National Museum, the big Ferris wheel near Deák Square. Budapest is a beautiful town and I’m sure they’ll enjoy
Wife:Yes, but I would like to show them something special as well, something they wouldn’t be able to see without local friends.
Husband:We can go to some of the ruin pubs. They are really unique and have a special atmosphere you can’t find anywhere else. And let’s go to the Opera House to see a ballet performance. They don’t need to understand Hungarian to enjoy ballet.
Wife:Good idea. I would like to show them the quaint little restaurants we enjoy going to and our favourite confectionaries, where they could taste the famous Hungarian cakes. I remember Mary has a sweet tooth.
Husband:Well, it sounds fun. I can’t wait to see them and I’m looking forward to the long walks. I love showing people around in our capital. I always learn something new and I usually enjoy sightseeing as much as our guests do.
