Budapest is the capital city of Hungary and the country's principal political, cultural, commercial, industrial and transportation center. Some fall in love with the city at first sight, others become devotees of Budapest only after a longer period of discovery; but all agree that it is one of the most beautiful locations in the world. It is considered to be one of the most vibrant and wonderful cities in Europe where the charm of old times and the characteristics of cosmopolitan living are blended. The broad Danube runs through the middle of this metropolis of two million, dividing the hilly Buda from the low-lying Pest. The riverside panorama has been declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO. To understand why, you just have to see the Castle District and the embankment at night, beautifully illuminated.Town size: year 2008 - 2000000
