Known as "Paris of the East" and considered the pearl of the Danube, Budapest is the elegant capital of Hungary, a city that still bears traces of its glorious past, from the influence of ancient Rome to the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The millions of tourists who visit it every year are fascinated by this majestic city which is divided into two banks, Buda and Pest, both overlooking the Danube and joined by wonderful bridges, such as the Chain Bridge. On the west bank of the river there are the ancient Óbuda, the first Roman settlement, and Buda with its hill, on which we can find the medieval district with the Royal Palace and the beautiful Matthias Church in Gothic style. On the eastern side there is Pest, a modern and vibrant city, full of shops, hotels, restaurants and nightlife. A walk in Andrassy Avenue is unmissable, to the National Opera House and the magnificent Heroes Square.
Also worth seeing are the majestic Parliament, the Basilica of St. Stephen and Margaret Island. Finally relax at the Cafe New York and, of course, in one of the many ancient thermal baths of this city that is rich in natural springs, of which many are found outdoors.
