12 Sep Budapest to Visegrad, Hungary
We started the day by visiting Andrassy 60, the former building of the Hungarian secret police and the last place you wanted to go under the former communist left government. The building is now a museum and it walks you through the dark years of Hungary’s past, starting in 1940s all the way up to the fall of communism. Although this would be our second visit, we wanted Sam and Jessica to see it for themselves. If you’re ever in Budapest, you need to visit the museum.
After visiting Andrassy 60 we grab our bikes and roll out of Budapest, but not before grabbing a quick bite from a local Gyros vendor. Leaving Budapest we pick up the EuroVelo 6 route that follows the Danube (Donau) river all the way into Austria, but first we have to visit the ruin in Visegrad. Sadly, we arrived a few minutes to late to visit the ruin, so we opt to stay the night in Visegrad and see it in the morning. Lucky for us we come across an apartment for rent and it’s cheaper than two rooms in the local hotel, plus the owner gives us a couple beers to get the evening started out right!
