An Overview of Budapest: One of Europe’s Most Beautiful Cities

Know as the most livable Central/Eastern European city, Budapest is visited by over 20 million people a year. The city sits on both banks of the Danube River and has the largest Jewish population in Europe. The Celts settled the territory around 1 AD and by 106 AD the Romans were building roads, homes, amphitheaters and bathhouses and using it for a military camp. In 1873 Budapest became a unified city when the right bank settlement of Buda, and the left bank settlement of Pest merged to become the city we know today.

Today the metropolitan area of Budapest is home for over 3 million people and is known worldwide for its 80 geothermal springs, the second oldest underground railroad in the world and Hero’s Square; the home of the Museum of Fine Arts and the Palace of Art, as well as the Millennium Memorial, which is dedicated to the seven tribes that established the country of Hungary in the 9th century. Budapest, located in central Hungary, includes several islands. Two of them are Csepel, and Margaret. Margaret is dedicated as recreational area filled with beautiful parks that are great for sunbathing. Csepel is the largest island. There are four towns on the island and it’s famous for jet-skiing and wake-boarding during the day and its pulsating dance clubs at night.
