About Budapest

In the middle of Europe lies the country of Hungary. Hungary is considered to be included in the world’s top 15 tourist spots. Although the country is relatively small as compared to its neighbors, Hungary houses numerous UNESCO Biosphere Reserves and World Heritage Sites. The capital city, Budapest, is considered as one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Budapest is home to modern architectures and natural ecosystems that provide a balance to the way of life in the city. Due to its scenic urban landscape, the city is commonly tagged as the “Paris of the East”. The setting is indeed scenic, whether one views it during the day or at night. According to tourists, the city of Budapest is one of the most enjoyable destinations in the whole continent of Europe. The UNESCO World Heritage List had added the city of Budapest in its prestigious list in 1987. The list of heritage sites is carefully considered by the UNESCO jury because they would only want to include destinations that have architectural and cultural significance to the world. Among the many classical buildings in Budapest, there were four tourist spots that made the cut. These are the Andrassy Avenue, Heroes’ Square, Buda Castle Quarter and Banks of the Danube. The Andrassy Avenue is home to important sights such as the House of Terror, City Park, Hopp Museum of East Asian Art, State Opera House and Ernst Museum among others. The 2.5 km long avenue stretches from the downtown area to the City Park. The Heroes’ Square is also located along the Andrassy Avenue. It is the most impressive square and the biggest in the city. It houses the Millennium Monument, an iconic landmark featuring Archangel Gabriel who holds a symbol of a double cross representing Christianity and the Holy Hungarian Crown. The Castle District and the Banks of Danube are known for being one of the most romantic settings in the city. Aside from the Buda Castle, the district was once the location of the historical old town or the early settlement of the city. Included in the Castle Quarter is the Citadel, Turkish Baths in Water Town, the Gellert Bath and the Technical University among others. Aside from its history, the city of Budapest is also known for its world-class classical music. The theater and art scene of Hungary is further developed in the city of Budapest. Some of the venues for live theater performances, operas and dance shows include the Theatre Madach, Hungarian State Opera House, Trafo House of Contemporary Arts, Palace of Arts, Budapest Operetta Theatre, Merlin International Theatre, Millenaris, Central European Dance Theater, MU Theatre, Danube Palace, Theatre Szkene and Experidance Company among others. Thermal springs in Budapest are also world-famous. That is why there are thermal baths around the city. Usually, “bathing” is accompanied with therapies like massages and drinking cures. Currently, there are co-ed areas and night bath parties to accommodate the European youth. However, there are also traditional public baths that can provide an alternative to bathing with inexpensive rates.
