Brokedown Palace

These are pictures of details of the palace gate at the bottom of Castle Hill (Buda side) that was designed as a grand entrance to the Palace. It has definitely seen better days. There is graffiti all over it, it is boarded up, and parts are crumbling down. It tells of a country with grand monarchal beginnings which had been overthrown by a regime that did not want people to remember the country and city's glorious past. And so it decays.

(P.S. I love that movie by they way even though it has nothing to do with this post.)
