Budapest, the capital of Hungary, is situated in the heart of Central Europe, on both sides of the Danube (Duna) River. On the right bank lies hilly and wooded Buda and on the left bank plain Pest. Biased locals and unbiased foreign visitors hold the view that Budapest is one of the finest situated cities in the world.

Budapest is also the center of cultural life in Hungary. It is a perfect place not only for tourists, but also for foreign visitors attending conferences, for the city has something to offer everyone with a few hours to spend after work or between meetings. After visiting one of the several famous museums or historical buildings, visitors can enjoy strolling in the Inner City, along the Duna Corso or on Margit Island, stopping to relax in a pleasant coffee-house, a small romantic restaurant or a cosy tavern. Evenings can be spent enjoying the summer entertainment in a night spot, or in one of the open-air theaters or concert halls in the city listening to the music of Bartók, Kodály or Liszt, or perhaps enjoying a folklore performance. Those in search for active recreation can visit Budapest’s famous baths and swimming pools.

Budapest named “the pearl of the Danube” or “little Paris”, is definitely the city you won’t be disappointed in, and just as certain that if you come, there will be one more person falling in love with it.
