The capital of Hungary, Budapest is also the country’s largest city. It is the heart of the country’s commercial, industrial, political, and transportation sectors, and the cultural hub of the nation. With over 1 million inhabitants, Budapest is the only city to occupy both banks of the Danube River.
Budapest is considered to be one of Europe’s most beautiful cities. It has an extensive World Heritage Site that would make tourists from all over the world in awe with its beauty. These include the Buda Castle Quarter, the Heroes’ Square, the Millennium Underground Railway (which is one of the world’s oldest), and the Andrássy Avenue.
Making the city more interesting is the fact that it has the largest thermal water cave system in the world, the second largest synagogue (next to Belz Great Synagogue in Jerusalem), and the third largest Parliament building.
Regarded as among Central Europe’s most important capitals, Budapest also emerged as one of the most livable and idyllic places to live according to EIU’s quality of life index and Forbes, respectively. Each year, about 2.3 million people from all over the globe come and visit Budapest.
