Budapest: part 3

budapest holocaust museum synagogue
the synagogue after the museum

Already the last part of my trip to Budapest.. But don't worry, I've found a way to share even two more posts about it after this one. It already seems like such a long time ago while it's not even a month ago. These are pictures from our last day there. We didn't have that much time anymore because we had to catch our plane at about 5pm but we did do some fun things.

In the morning, we visited the Holocaust Museum. I'm really interested in history, especially about the second world war. The museum was really interesting, with lots of different stories and facts. We didn't read everything because we didn't have enough time but I would definitely recommend it. At some point though, there's a horrifying video. I almost had to cry. It might upset some people's stomach too. At the end of your walk through the museum, you get into a synagogue but I didn't really get the specifics of it.

After our museum visit, we decided to have a quick (cheap) lunch at McDonalds and then we went to the zoo! I love animals and I love zoos (well, if it's well built and comfortable for the animals at least but that's another story) so I was really glad we went there. I didn't think it was really appropriate to take pictures in the Holocaust Museum so this post will consist mainly out of cute animals. It's an extreme contrast, from such a rough part of history to cute animals but I'm glad we ended with the zoo. That way, we had a really good feeling when it was time to leave eventually.

I'm still going to share some picture I took with my phone (panorama shots for example) and a whole post of selfies! It's quite funny actually, my camera was full of photos of Jelle (the girlfriend I went with) and hers was full of photo's of me. So that's still coming up as well!

Would you visit a zoo when you're on vacation? building budapest architecture
Budapest was full of amazing buildings. I'm sorry I can't tell you what this is, we just passed by it when walking from the museum to the zoo. If anyone knows, let me know.

Beautiful rhino in the zoo. They were inside because it way too cold outside. Same story for the giraffes below.

This mister here was a real star. When we walked in the pavillion, he was sleeping and when he heard us, he immediately put up his head and posed like this untill we walked away again. 
budapest zoo bear
My first time ever seeing a brown bear! This diva just walked away though when we were passing by. Still, I'm so glad I finally saw one in real life! 
budapest zoo tiger
Another precious photomodel. The picture below is some statue from inside the zoo.

If you are wondering why this camel is standing with his legs wide open, he just did his deed. Which was pretty hilarious to see.

Also, this was the outside of the zoo, really pretty as well!
