Places to visit in Budapest. Languages: en, he, ru

For all the cities of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, it was customary to erect monuments to Empress Elizabeth, nicknamed Sissi. She was the wife of the last Kaiser, Franz Josef, and had a tragic fate. Her son committed suicide. He shot himself with his mistress. Then Sissy said: “I would like to die like him when the soul goes to heaven from a tiny hole in my heart, away from friends and relatives. ” Her desire was destined to come true. Anarchist Luigi Lukeni waited for the Empress on the dam in Geneva, where Sissy was incognito with her maid of honor. He hurt her with a small sharp file wound in the heart. At first, Elizabeth did not even feel pain, was able to stand up and turned around, was surprised that the attacker did not even tear off her jewelry. But soon she became weak, she fell and lost consciousness.

Budapest evening of Dec 10, 2019

A short walk in the evening winter Budapest. We pass Karoli Boulevard, a monument to Empress Elizabeth, Freedom Square, monuments and a secret bunker of the Cold War, parliament square and the history of Hungarian independence. The winter is cool on the Danube but the stunning parliament building admires by its beauty and grandeur. We stopped for a minute of silence at the Danube embankment next to the chilling soul monument to the victims of the Holocaust. To the end of the walking have visited a cozy Christmas city center with its Christmas markets and have ended the tour with mystical Anchor House and the luminous synagogue.
