Life | Budapest's Pálvölgyi cave & Szemlőhegyi cave, Libegő & The Royal Opera House

 These few pictures are a pair of a lotttttt of pictures that I took in Budapest's Pálvölgyi cave and Szemlőhegyi cave, which were both incredible!
You can buy a combined ticket for both caves, I cant remember how much exactly, but was pretty cheap and they are both a short walking distance (about 10 minutes) from one another.
The weather inside the caves is a constant 10/11 degrees, and when we arrived in shorts and t-shirts and some other people waiting were wrapping themselves in scarves and putting on hats and coats we did begin to worry that we had somewhat underestimated just how cold it was going to be.
But, considering it was 37°C outside the cool was very much appreciated!

A short bus ride from the caves you can find the Children's Railway (which since the Soviets has been run by children)and then jump off and climb the rather steep and long walk up to Elizabeth Look-out tower.
The view from the top is incredible and the way back down via the chairlift or the Libegő as it is locally known is much less hard work.

Our last stop was to see a ballet production of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs in The Royal Opera House. The interior was incredible, and the production (also the first ballet I have ever watched) was really enjoyable. 
Excuse the fact that it is a production aimed at children.....its just as enjoyable for adults!
So if you want to have a look inside the Opera House, don't book the tour, just buy some tickets to see a show.... plus they were SO cheap! 
We were pretty far back, but you could still see everything jut fine, although it must be said the seats weren't exactly the most comfortable and they were considerably slim (and squeaky).
