Budapest, Hungary

Budapest, a beautiful historic city on the shores of the Danube River, is the capital of Hungary. The Danube river splits the town: the western part, hosting most of the national monuments, called Buda. The eastern part, Pest, is where the commercial and financial life of the city is taking place. 

Due to geological reasons, Budapest has 120 hot springs. The Turks, who ruled the city for a hundred and fifty years, assimilated the culture of bathing in the hot baths in Hungarian culture. Today it is a favorite leisure activity and attraction for tourist.

 

Like other large cities in Eastern Europe, Budapest also had a sizeable Jewish community, which suffered much from the Nazis and their Fascist collaborators from the local population: persecution, public humiliation, ongoing discrimination, mass executions and the deportation of tens of thousands to the Nazi death camps. This great community, which started living in the Area in the 12th century, lost more than a half during the holocaust (from all of Hungary, 565,000 Jews were murdered during the Holocaust). Today the historical Jewish quarter is the center of the Budapest nightlife, what makes the visit to the neighborhood a vibrant and attractive option for all tourists.

My first visit to Budapest was 9 or ten years ago. I visited all the Must-Visit places, like the Parliament building, the hot Baths, the Statue Park, the Buda Castle, The Great Synagogue and Matthias Church. Unfortunately, I have no pictures from that visit. My second visit was something else: I wanted to explore other things. I hope it will give you some ideas for your next trip to Budapest.
