Budapest- Paris of the East
Budapest is the capital city of Hungary. It consists of three main parts: Buda, the hilly West side of the Danube, Castle Hill, District I of Buda, the oldest part of the city containing the eponymous Castle and many of Budapest's best-known attractions and Pest, the flat East side of the Danube, covering the modern commercial core of the city. The wide boulevards and lovely architecture remnd you of the regal past. Many of the buildings need renovations, but the elegant structure is very apparent.
