Hi HK

"The Dohany Street Synagogue is located on the west side of Budapest, in the center of Pest. It is one of the most famous churches in Budapest and the most famous synagogue in the local area.

"The Trinity Square is an open area in front of the Matthias Church on Castle Hill. The protagonist of the Trinity Square is a white monument column, which is a sculpture of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The pillars of the monument are engraved with the Holy Father, Jesus, and the cross, with exquisite workmanship. The statue of the Trinity was funded by people who survived the Black Death in Hungary in the 18th century. People use this way to commemorate that darkest moment. The biggest reason I like Europe is the rich history and humanity here, because the people here respect and awe the history. If you walk anywhere, you can see churches, streets, bridges, and buildings hundreds of years ago. People thrived and thrived in history, and the long-flowing life has turned today into history, endless..."
