2014 European Figure Skating Championships, Budapest
Last month, I had the chance to take in in the European Figure Skating Championships in Budapest. It was real sneak peek for the Olympic Games. The women’s event was was one the best I’ve seen with every skater in the last flight performing almost flawlessly. Here are some pics from the competition and the beautiful city of Budapest.
Here we are, taking it all in. And, maybe dreaming a bit of being competitors ourselves.
Julia Lipnitskaia performs close to perfection and wins gold.
The highlight for me was seeing Carolina Kostner skate another spellbinding Ravel’s Bolero.
Amidst the skating, we did our best to see a bit of beautiful Budapest. Sightseeing included a morning at the Szechenyi Baths.
On our final night in Budapest it was over to the Castle District for dinner and an unforgettable view of the Parliament.
