Photographer's Note

Rózsadomb - Rose Hill is a very prestigious district of Budapest. It was named after a companion of turkish Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent. A dervish Gül Baba - Father of Roses is considered to have brought roses to Hungary for the first time. His octagonal tomb is located on the top of the hill. It is the most northern Islamic pilgrimage site in the world and an excellent view point for admiring the city over the Danube river.
