The beautiful Hungarian Capital is famous not only for the monuments reflecting its own 1,000 year-old culture, but also for the relics of others who settled here.
Budapest is split between two areas stretching along the banks of the Danube. Buda comprises one-third of the city’s area; located along the right bank and surrounded by mountains. Here you will find the historic castle district offering medieval streets, museums, caves, Roman ruins and the impressive János Hill, the highest summit of Buda.
Across the river, the dynamic Pest boasts the largest Parliament building in Europe, riverside promenades, flea markets, book and antique stores and cafés.
