The fog threatened to dampen spirits, but that can’t happen in the company of our guide, Gabriel. Hot spiced wine anyone? Gabriel’s tours seem to make statues and buildings come alive to tell their true story. There he is leaning in to our group seated in the pews of St. Matyas (Matthias) church with his portfolio of maps and photos. Just outside the church is the Fisherman’s Bastion where a clear day would offer a panarama of the Danube and Pest on the other side.
