Budapest is the capital and the most populous city of Hungary, and one of
the largest cities in the European Union. It is a global megacity and an
epicentre of Hungarian art, fashion, and technology that doubles up as one
of the largest economy drivers of the European Union. Straddling the River
Danube, Budapest has served as the co-capital of the Austro-Hungarian
Empire and the focal point of the Hungarian Revolution of 1848 and 1956.
The city’s profound historical identity is evident in its historical
monuments, old churches and quaint castles. A star attraction here is its
thermal springs that are known to have therapeutic qualities since
Things to do in Budapest
Buda Castle & Castle Hill
Standing beside the River Danube and piercing the Towering over the Danube,
the Castle Hill is home to several medieval lanes and Romanesque, Gothic,
and Baroque architectural marvels and some museums. None of them is more
famous than a grand and equally opulent 200-room palace called Buda Castle
that was built in 18th century. The castle is hallmarked by a
bronze horse-ridden statue of Prince Eugene of Savoy who had successfully
defended the city in Astro-Turkish War (1716-18).
If you’re looking for a simple morning walk or calm evening walk,
Budapest's lovely pedestrian-friendly cobbled streets are your number one
option. This area runs around the Parliament Building, the world's third
largest parliament building and a stunning signature of Neo-Gothic
St. Stephen's Basilica of Budapest
The St. Stephen's Basilica of Budapest is known for its 3 attributes- its
remarkable architecture, its ornate interiors and the city’s panoramic view
that it affords from its apex. The mid-19th century basilica is
dedicated to St. Stephen, who was Hungary's holy king and the founder of
the Hungarian state. St. Stephen's Basilica of Budapest was largely rebuilt
after the Second World War to emerge as a frontrunner of Neoclassical
architecture in Budapest.
