Budapest Life Thursday Doors

Thursday Doors Budapest 2

Budapest was voted the best European city for travellers in 2019, when it attracted more than 12 million tourists. I went in November, but it is lovely in spring time. Most visitors cram into the city over the summer months, when it is warmer and crowded.

Google translate says that this shop is Finger and Son. Helpful. But nice doors.
Welcome to the Old Curiosity Shop “Antiquity”
Hat Shop – not very common in my neck of the woods
No sniggering at the back, please. This is a Doner Kebab restaurant, not a Hooters (I did actually see a Hooters, but it had closed down).
Schoolboy in camo jacket and Adidas jogging pants, lugs his homework on his back as he walks in front of a grim door, which needs lots of love
The sign translates as “Economic Entrance” – by which I think they mean “tradesmen’s entrance. I saw a few young men in hotel livery popping out for a quick cigarette via this door. They scowled when they saw my camera, so I waited until they had gasped their last and disappeared inside before taking the picture.
I think this is a bank. Heavy studded doors, with security.
Leather goods, shoe shop, but Google translate comes up with “Bordeaux Stockings”. I like the last above the door, with inverted boot.
This portal and lamp post takes me back to the Golden Age of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
