The capital of Hungary straddles a curve of the River Danube where Transdanubia meets the Great Plain. One Hungarian in five lives in Budapest totalling a number of 2 million inhabitants. More romantic than Warsaw, more cosmopolitan than Prague, Budapest is the ‘first city' of East-Central Europe. With the River Danube as its pulse, Budapest beats to a rhythm of indomitable spirit cloaked in beauty and charm. The Hungarian capital is exquisitely laid out on both sides of the Danube, claiming one of the most spectacular panoramic views in all of Europe. You can bear witness from the Buda side of the river on the Castle Hill. From here, the spires of the Houses of Parliament and the Chain Bridge can be seen awash in golden light every evening. Their reflection on the river, combined with the dotted lights of Pest, is simply awe-inspiring. So are the buildings of the Castle Hill: the neo-Gothic Matthias Church, surrounded by quaintly restored medieval homes on cobblestone streets; the imposing Royal Palace, and the turreted Fishermen's Bastion.
