Budapest is the Capital of Hungary

Aug 28, 2007
Budapest is the capital city of Hungary and the countries principal political, industrial, commercial and transportation centre. It has more than 2 million inhabitants. It lies in the centre of the Carpathian Basin in Europe, on both sides of the river Danube.

History left its traces everywhere in the city. You can see them on her grand buildings, in cobbled streets and on peoples faces. Despite of modernisation efforts the capital of Hungary managed to preserve its identity.

Regarded by many as one of Worlds most beautiful cities, Budapest has become the most popular travel destination in Central Europe along with Vienna and Prague. Millions of tourists visit the city every year.

The people are charming, and for the most part very helpful. They are proud of what this ancient capital has to offer, and proud of their contributions to European culture, especially in the field of music, a universal language one doesn't need to speak to appreciate.

Sziget is not only a festival, but a week long opportunity to camp out in the temporarily built festival city on a gorgeous island where besides basic facilities posting and banking services, restaurants, pubs, shops and a number of other amenities provide comfort and entertainment.

The Jewish Summer Festival and the International Wine Festival celebrate various historic, artistic and cultural periods and the Budapest Summer Opera and Ballet Festival celebrates fine musical heritage.

The spectacular ensemble of statues erected to commemorate the thousandth anniversary of the Magyar Conquest is situated at the end of Budapests most beautiful avenue. The monument was designed by Albert Schickedanz and Fulop Herczog. Many of the statues representing Hungarian Monarchs and Princes of Transylvania were made by Gorgy Zala. At the centre of the Monument there is a column surrounded by seven figures leaders of the seven Hungarian tribes.

The St. Anne Church is one of the most beautiful baroque buildings of Budapes. The construction of the church started in 1740. In the next 200 years the church suffered from wars, floods and earthquakes, even it was planned to be demolished, owing to the construction of the metro network. Fortunately this plan was not realised, and the church was reconstructed between 1970 to 1984.

If youre yearning for a city break getaway that will give you culture, nightlife, history and relaxation, then it will present a holiday break youll never forget.

Come and see for yourself and dont forget to have fun.
