This blog was created to report updates and additions to the growing collection of photos showing places, sights, culture and people of Hungary. I plan to comment on the pictures that are added, picking the favorites and leaving the rest to critics :-). Hungary has so many faces that there is nothing that can reduce the variety of images coming to RoamHungary!
There is no better place to start off the exploration of Hungary than the former center of Hungary's road system, the Zero Kilometre Stone located on Budapest's Adam Clark Square:
(To illustrate the central role of Budapest in Hungary, I could mention that all of Hungary's main roads (from M1 to 9) start from Budapest.) The Zero Kilometer Stone was originally placed at the entrance of the Royal Palace, then it was relocated to Adam Clark Square when the Széchenyi Chain Bridge was built in the 1840s. The bridge in the upper center area of the photo is nicely lighted, while the Zero Kilometer Stone on the roundshaped square is in almost darkness, slightly left and lower from the center of the picture.
