Budapest, the capital of Hungary, is an interesting, cosmopolitan city that should not be underestimated.
Budapest’s beautiful historic section is Castle Hill on the Buda side of the Danube. Across the river is Pest, the sprawling and hectic center of the modern city that saw much of its development at the turn of century. Budapest is possibly more active, enticing, and bewildering than any other European city. Here, business people from as far as Moscow and London brush shoulders on the subway while youth from all over the world enjoy the city’s many great cafés, bars and clubs. It’s a gritty city still left to its locals and savored for its pounding, pensive energy.
