Welcome to BUDAPEST
an extra service of European City Guide / ECG
eurocityguide.com - eurocityguide.com


Information about BUDAPEST Budapest is the capital of Hungary and with a population of 2 million citizens by far the largest city in the country. The city is often referred as the Paris of the east, and deserves this name. The picturesque setting on two sides of the Danube, the nine connecting bridges and the villa's and public buildings from the fin-de-siecle era really make Budapest one of the most enjoyable cities in Europe. Budapest is composed of two cities: the small Buda, on the west side of the river looking over the much larger Pest on the opposite side. The two parts developed seperately as the bourgois Buda with it's palaces and spas and the more commercial Pest. At first, the hills of Buda were the safe core of the twin cities, but as Buda and Pest were united with Óbuda (Ancient Buda) the plains of Pest became the centre of the growing metropolis. Today, the most famous landmark of Budapest is the Parliament building on the banks of the Danube. Budapest has some very good museums as well, The National Museum, the Jewish Museum and the Historical Museum of Budapest being the best. Budapest has developed to become a very lively city. By day, you can roam the city, visit a museum, take a look around churches, make your choise from the dozen or so types of coffee in one of the cafes. By night you can have dinner at a cheap or a fancy eating out, go to the opera, and afterwards dance the night away.
