Striking images merge the city's past and present?

Budapest, 1976 & 2013
The Hungarian Parliament Building hasn't changed much from 1976. It is still the tallest building in Budapest today.
Budapest, 1969 & 2013
While the seasons in these two photos taken in the exact same spot on Gellert Hill in Budapest may be drastically different, the beautiful scenery and backdrop showing the Buda Castle and the Chain Bridge hasn't changed. While one woman sunbathes in her bikini in 1969, visitors bundle up to check out the view in 2013.
Budapest, 1959 & 2013
Though there is still a swing set in this Budapest park, the wooden swing planks from 1959 have been replaced by modern green ones.
Budapest, 1958 & 2013
Photographer Kerenyi Zoltan found vintage black and white photos depicting Budapest from decades past and then proceeded to shoot his own images in the exact same location and direction. Here, a man takes a video in 1958, while the same large street is seen in 2013.
Budapest, 1956 & 2013
In homage to his hometown of Budapest, Hungarian photographer Kerenyi Zoltan shows off striking juxtaposition photography with then and now images of the city. His photo series is called "Ablak a Multra," which means "Window to the Past." Check out the amazing photos ... While much has changed in Budapest since 1956, National Theatre Street -- with its streetcar tracks and buildings still in place -- looks nearly the same today.
Budapest, 1952 & 2013
Motorcycles and vespas were just as popular in the European city in 1952 as they are today. While modern cars now line the streets, the Hungarian Franciscan Square still looks the same.
Budapest, 1948 & 2013
Budapest is the capital and largest city of Hungary. The city's past has been brought to life once again with Kerenyi Zoltan's photo series. Here, a quiet street is seen in both 1948 and 2013.
Budapest, 1940 & 2013
These two photos of the main reading room at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics may have been taken 73 years apart, but juxtaposed together they look nearly identical, right down to the reading lamps.
Budapest, 1938 & 2013
The Gothic style Matthias Church in Budapest still attracts crowds of tourists fascinated by the city's landmarks.
Budapest, 1936 & 2013
Zoltan found the decades-old black and white images from the website Fortepan. His series of bridging Budapest's past and present recently went viral on Reddit. Here, the Museum of Fine Arts in Budapest is seen both in 1936 and 2013.
Budapest, 1928 & 2013
A green and beige house hasn't changed much since it was first snapped in 1928 -- but the cars driving down the street certainly have.
Budapest, 1956 & 2013
Many of the juxtaposed images are so similar, they look like they are part of one photograph when merged together. Here, a tank in 1956 drives down a Budapest street which was later captured by Zoltan in 2013.
