There is no doubt Budapest is a really beautiful city. Moreover, let me be a little biased: Budapest is one of the world’s most appealing cities. Why am I telling you? Because occasionally I have to remind myself how lucky I am to live here.
The bustling metropolis, Budapest, is the heart of the country, with a population of two million. The magic of the capital lies in the fortunate combination of its ideal location, the charming beauty of nature, and human architecture. Two thousand years ago the Romans founded the outpost Aquincum in the area, but the modern city was established only in 1873, with the merging of three separate towns, Buda, Obuda, and Pest. The unique panorama of the city unfolds as we look around from the Citadel of Gellert Hill, or across the Danube over the Chain Bridge, so no wonder that Budapest is registered a World Heritage site by UNESCO. Hilly Buda rises over the right bank of the river, crowned by the medieval Castle District and the magnificent Royal Palace. The green gem of the gently winding silver river is Margaret Island.
The economic, political, and financial centre of the city is Pest, spread out in the flatland on the left side of the river, where beautiful buildings (like the imposing House of Parliament) built before the turn of the century harmoniously complement the modern buildings of today.
Budapest is the city of festivals, conferences, museums, and spas, with a rich cultural and natural heritage.
The first underground railway of the continent, launched in 1896 from the square at the end of the famous Váci utca shopping area, connects the inner city with the mansions of Andrássy Boulevard, the Neo-Renaissance Opera House, the millennial monument of Heroes’ Square, the Museum of Fine Arts and the Art Gallery.
