Budapest

A visit to Budapest will leave you thirsting for more. This impressive capital encapsulates the very best of what Hungary has to offer. It is a large, vibrant city, harbouring a population of approximately 1 million. This is one of the most densely populated cities in the region, making it the powerhouse of the economy, and the home of a range of interests, from Business and tourism to culture.

Budapest is the capital and the largest city of Hungary, and one of the largest cities in the European Union.

The history of Budapest began with Aquincum, originally a Celtic settlement that became the Roman capital of Lower Pannonia. Hungarians arrived in the territory in the 9th century.

Budapest became a single city occupying both banks of the river Danube with the unification of Buda and Óbuda on the west bank, with Pest on the east bank on 17 November 1873.

Budapest and its surrounding is a real paradise for sport events ranging from athletics (European Championship in 1966, 1998; World Championship: 2004), the modern Pentathlon (World Championships: 1954, 1969, 1979, 1989, 1999, 2008) fencing (World Championships: 1933,1959, 1975, 1991, 2000, 2013), and marathon runs offering splendid views along the two quays of the river Danube. Athletes pass by Buda Castle – part of the UNESCO heritage – Gellért hill, the Parliament, Chain bridge competing against one another and against the clock.

Budapest is packed with museums and galleries,and there are plenty of temporary exhibitions in the most unlikely of settings, particularly in summer. The city glories in 223 museums and galleries, which presents several memories, not only the Hungarian historical, art and science ones, but also the memories of universal and European culture and science. Here are the greatest examples among them: the Hungarian National Museum, the Hungarian National Gallery.

Regarding the water related links of the city Danube is the number one reference, which splits the hilly Buda and the flat Pest side into two. Besides, Budapest is the city of spas, where visitors can reinvigorate in one the 19 different thermal waters or the 8 classical spas, including the Turkish spas, thanks to the unique composition and water temperature.

Those who look for more energetic water activities could have memorable moments at Acquaworld or at Aquarena, next to Hungaroring.
