Strolling around a railway station

Amazing door near Keleti Pu, Budapest

Generally tourists tend to leave a railway station as quick as they can. They hurry down to the metro or they are looking for a cheap bus or a quick taxi in order to get to their hotel.

The charm of understanding nothing

Door at Keleti Pu in Budapest

I speak German and English. I understand a bit Romance and Slavonic languages. I don’t understand Hungarian. Not a single word. But I loved to listen to the loudspeakers at the railway station Keleti Pu in Budapest. Listening to a completely foreign language is like listening to music, isn’t it?

A colourful street name sign I came across next to the railway station Keleti Pu. I love such signs which show more than the name of the street.

While walking through the railway station Keleti pályaudva ‘Keleti Pu’ I came across this chandalier. It was not the only one which was decorated with a crow. I guess, it is a method to scare the pigeons off. What do you think?
