Cities must share their noise, space and murky air with the thousands or millions of people that stay there. Budapest, Hungary is no exception. But just like New York, Paris, or Tokyo, citizens, tourists and lovers often retreat to the open green spaces that are sprinkled here and there for restoring the soul. People in Hungary love the shade of the big old sycamore trees, love the botanical displays, pause to admire the plants that trail over and across old buildings and play with the "wildlife" when the weekend holiday allows. It is so easy to relax and pretend there is no war torn history to this area.
