Budapest

Budapest is the capital city of Hungary. With green filled parks full of charming pleasures, museums that will inspire, and a pulsating nightlife that is on par to its European counterparts, Budapest is one of Europe's most delightful and enjoyable cities.Regarded by many as one of world's most beautiful cities, travelers are quickly recognising the appeal of Budapest, with tourism accounting for approximately 20 million visitors per year.
Consisting of two very different cities, Buda on the west bank of the Danube River and Pest on the east bank, Budapest (pronounced "BOO-dah-pesht") offers travelers Viennese romanticism at an affordable price. However, Budapest is unique in its own right. Hungarians are proud of what this ancient capital has to offer and its contributions to European culture, especially in the field of music, a language one doesn't need to speak to appreciate.

Budapest first appeared on the world map when the Romans founded the town of Aquincum around 89 AD, in what is today Óbuda. It soon became the capital of the province of Lower Pannonia, and the Romans even founded a proto-Pest known as Contra Aquincum on the other side of the river.
The Romans were replaced around 900 by the Magyars, who went on to found the kingdom of Hungary. The Mongols dropped in uninvited in 1241, but the Magyars bounced back and built the Royal Castle that still today dominates Buda in 1427.
In 1541, Buda and Pest fell to the Ottomans and stayed in the hands of the Turks until 1686, when the Austrian Habsburgs conquered the town. Now at peace, both sides of the river boomed, and after an abortive Hungarian revolution in 1848–49, the great Compromise of 1867 made Budapest the united capital of the Hungarian half of the Dual Monarchy of Austria-Hungary.
Budapest emerged from World War I battered, but now the capital of an independent Hungary, and its population reached one million by 1930. Air raids and a terrible three-month siege towards the end of World War II resulted in the death over 38,000 civilians, and up to 40% of Budapest's Jewish community were murdered during the Holocaust. A total of 400 000 Jews in the area were murdered by the Nazis and their Nyilas sympathizers. One man noted in history was Raoul Wallenberg, a Swedish humanitarian sent to Hungary under a diplomatic cover, who tried to make a difference by distributing Swedish passports to as many Jews as possible.
After the war, the city recovered and became a showcase for the more pragmatic policies of Hungary's hard- line Communist government. It was, however, site of the 1956 Hungarian uprising against unpopular policies such as collectivisation. The revolution against communist rule only ended when the Soviets sent in the tanks as they felt Hungary slipping out of their influence and control. Today's Budapest is by far the wealthiest and most cosmopolitan city in Hungary and is increasingly popular with tourists. In 1987, it was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List for the cultural and architectural significance of the Banks of the Danube, the Buda Castle Quarter and Andrássy Avenue.

    Get around

    General:
    It is entirely feasible to walk through the city of Budapest, because tourist destinations are not far away from the city centre. Budapest has an excellent public transport network. Light rail and buses connect the city with the suburbs. There are also 3 subway lines.
    The public transport network in Budapest includes buses, trams, underground and suburban rail lines. Buses, trolley buses and trams run daily from 4.30 to 23 clock. The three metro lines intersect in the city center at Deák tér. Between Budapest and Csepel Island in the southern part of the city and also in the surrounding towns of Szentendre, Gödöllő, Ráckeve run commuter trains. In addition to the more than 180 bus routes, 14 trolleybus lines, 29 tram lines and 3 subway lines there are also vehicles like the Buda funicular, the cog railway or the chair lift. The trams have yellow color. The former tram models a bit of the city have a sense of nostalgia, while the new trams are equipped with additional features such as air condition and automatic ticketing systems. Tickets for the tram can be bought at any kiosk and all tobacc shops. With informative line maps, legends and bi-lingual messages at each stop it is easy to get around. Since Budapest had the first underground railway in continental Europe, the people are proud of their subway technology. So shall be launched a fourth line in 2014, and a fifth is planned. The M1, which is also called földalatti, is the oldest underground railway in continental Europe, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is a sight worth seeing.
    Tickets can be drawn from vending machines. Tickets must be validated before boarding the train platforms, occasionally find controls on outputs instead. A ticket is only valid for one ride on a vehicle.
    In the Buda Castle District only taxis and passenger cars may operate with a special permit. Among other things, so it is a good idea to leave the car and use public transport.
    Buda Castle Funicular (Budavari Sikló): This beautiful, short funicular railway takes you from the Chain Bridge to the castle. BKV tickets and passes are not valid. As expected, however, it is relatively expensive and touristy.
    The main sights can be reached by bicycle, and in some places (Margaret Island, Buda bank of the Danube), there are very nice bicycle paths.

  • Local specialties include paprikás, gulyás, Lake Balaton pike-perch (fogas), pörkölt (a goulash-like stew with lots of onions), halászlé (fishermen's soup served differently by regions), stuffed cabbage, and liberal use of paprika. There is also a great variety of wonderful pastries, many of which you will recognize if you are familiar with Viennese pastries. As in other spheres, the Hungarian approach to food combines pride in their own traditions with a readiness to accept outside influences. The result is a vibrant restaurant scene where an Asian-Hungarian fusion restaurant may well be of genuine interest.
    Remember, though, that "goulash soup" is indeed a soup, not the "goulash" that visitors may be familiar with. To order that, you want "pörkölt".
    See the Buda, Castle Hill and Pest articles for detailed listings of restaurants and cafes.
    Coffeehouses (kávéház) are a Budapest institution and a visit to one should be on every traveller's agenda. As the name implies, these are places for a cup of coffee and a delectable pastry, not a full meal.

  • Budapest is a famous spa city, so go "bathing". The baths are really the last vestige of Turkish culture in Budapest, left over from their occupation of the city. Budapest does not have a large Turkish culture the way a city like Berlin or Munich does; instead the Hungarians have modified and molded this tradition into something of their own.
    All baths are built around hot springs, and their central part is one or several thermal pools. They are usually complimented with several steam baths, saunas, massage services and other therapies including drinking cures. Unlike in some Scandinavian or German baths, at Budapest baths almost all places require you to wear your bathing suit to the sauna too!
    Tourist mix: After locals, Russians seem to be most frequent in Budapest's baths; Italians and Americans come next (and for many Americans, baths are the main reason for visiting Budapest).
