Europe 8: Hungary - Budapest

Europe  8: Hungary - Budapest

Rightly called "The Paris of the East," Budapest offers a rich cultural heritage, magnificent architecture, and busy shopping districts. The Danube River flows through this modern metropolis that maintains its links to its 2000-year-old-past. Here we see Budavari Palota, "Buda Castle," once a royal palace, today is home to the National Gallery, Budapest History Museum, Ludwig Museum and the National Library. Szechenyi Lanchid, "Chain Bridge," which was completed in 1849, is the city's first permanent bridge across the Danube that links the center of Buda to the center of Pest. The Parliament Building is the symbol of the capital. Built in 1904 it resembles a Gothic cathedral and is still the active seat of Hungarian government. Budapest is the world's only metropolis and capital with over 100 thermal springs and wells, which feed such famous Hungarian baths as Szechenyi Spa. Hosok Tere, "Heroes Square," was constructed in 1896 to mark the 1000 anniversary of the Magyars arrival and is home to such sites as Angel Gabriel and Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. 02/09DE IJSCA 15 min.
