BUDAPEST TRAVEL GUIDE

Budapest Travel Guide - Budapest is one of the most beautiful cities in the world and lies on the River Danube in the East of Europe. It developed when the separate towns of Buda, Pest and Óbuda in 1873 amalgamated into the one great city Budapest. The Danube runs through the city so that the two parts Buda and Pest, on opposite river banks, remain somewhat separate. The Royal Castle and district that around it is the key visiting area on the Buda side of the city while the Vaci Street shopping area is a great attractions of the Pest part which you can find more information with this travel guide.

The history of Budapest has had its ups and downs and there has been many changes in terms of prosperity and also political developments. Today, the city is made up of twenty-three districts and streets signs and addresses are in Roman numerals. Buda is situated to the west of the overall city - it is on a hill and has lovely narrow cobbled streets and alleyways, with wonderful historic buildings. Pest is on the east bank of the Danube and has wide tree lined avenues, huge almost overpowering buildings - though the wide boulevards mean the buildings are in keeping with the surrounds.

If you are looking for a good hotel you can book Budapest Hotels here. There is a wide selection of hotels to choose from.

Hungary joined the EU in 2004 and Budapest, particularly since then, has become one of the most popular city tourist destinations in Europe - and with good cause, it is a city full of surprises and wonderful historic links.
