Got up early and put the car in motion towards Hungary. On the way, I saw an old school-house that I wanted to picture so we stopped in Sebes for a coffee.
Old school building from 1865: Education is freedom
Church in Sebes – note the small towers!
Some old guy closed the church gates when we wanted to get in. They have a lunch break here! Reminds me of Italy where many churches are closed as well.
Some old canon
Coffee break in Sebes
Râpa Roșie (Romanian for “red ravine”) is a natural monument in Alba County about 4 kilometers north of Sebeș. We tried to find an easy road that goes there but somehow we got lost and it took us forever to get up there. Finally, we reached the parking and hiked up the hill.
Mitsos was happy that we finally got here. It took forever.
If you ever been to the Badlands you can relate
On the way out from the Canyon we followed the wrong road along a river with no bridge for way to long. Even the cows can not make it! But in the end, we found our way out and got back on the road towards Budapest!
Old factory in Timiş, Romania
What you do with the last money? You stop at one of the last shops and get some cigarettes for friends and some beer for the road! CiUC beer – it was hot in the car and the beer was cold = win!
Bergenbier – this one was ok
At the Hungarian Border. Guess what the transporter will bring back from Hugary!
As always we had to find a save parking for the car. All that Olive Oil and Greek food inside. Not easy if you do not know a place. I used booking.com and was able to find a cheap place with save parking behind metal gates. A Chinese guy that has two apartments rents out rooms on AirBnb and booking. What a world! After we checked in we had a stroll to the river and back.
The famous Gallerthegy bridge
Count Zichy Nándor. He initiated the canalization of several rivers in the Transdanubia region. The Count built his palace in the palace district of Budapest in front of the Jesuit Church. This part of the city was called “Little Vatican” because of the high number of Catholic institutions. Zichy supported the Jesuit order until his death.
