As Winnie-the-Pooh famously said, ‘The nicest thing about the rain is that it always stops. Eventually’. Given yesterday’s long downpour, and to begin our regular series, Pictures of Budapest, we thought we’d dig out our favourite rainy scenes snapped by our photo team. Nagykörút pedestrians skip over newly formed lagoons, storm clouds gather over Fishermen’s Bastion and umbrellas come out in force. Take a look!

We still have to wait a few weeks for spring sunshine, so to kick off our regular series of everyday urban images, Pictures of Budapest, we put together a few showery scenes of the Hungarian capital.
