Travel to Budapest, Hungary
It is said that it is impossible to remain immune to the peaceful charm of Budapest, made irresistible by the calm waters of the Danube. Budapest is the capital of Hungary. Not just a political head, it is also the cultural and commercial centre point of the country. It also plays a pivotal part in European politics.
The city considered by many to be the "Paris of the East". Budapest has the distinction of being one of the most beautiful cities in the world. It is one of the most culturally important metropolises in Eastern Europe and home to UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The UNESCO has declared Budapest’s Castle District, the Danube Embankment, and the entire Andrassy Ut as a World Heritage Site. So while in Budapest, try to make it a point to visit all three of these World Heritage sites.
Today, Budapest attracts more than 20 million visitors annually from across the globe to its countless historical sites, museums and art galleries, as well as its sports halls, stadiums and the Hungaroring Formula 1 racetrack.
