There is nothing like the turn of the dial on the year to cause one to get a bit nostalgic and with a bit of wistfulness, look back. Luckily, with the Internet and other media, it is becoming easier and easier to take a peek and see things as they were years, even decades ago. It is our good fortune to have stumbled upon this thrilling – yet somehow meditative – video that highlights gorgeous old photographs of Budapest as it was a century ago. And because we love putting locations in Budapest in front of your eyes, we went ahead and did a little photo research of our own and gathered a few of the same sites as they are now. It is amazing to see what has changed, and what has stayed the same. That’s one of the things that makes Budapest such a fantastic place to work and film: the melding of the old and regal with the modern and sleek. But enough chattering, have a look at the video, then join us below for a cozy trip back in time. No need to bring your camera: we’ve got you covered.
