and largest city of Hungary. Once part of the Austro-Hongarian Empire.
The Habsburg family got their hands on the Hungarian Crown. It is one
of the most beautifull cities in Europe except if you want to see
modern architecture. The Donau is very wide here and is a real part of
the city. On one side of the Donau the area is flat and here you find
the largest part of the city center. The Hungarian Parliament building
along the Donau in the middle if the city, might have been inspired by
the British Parliament building along the Thames. Hungarians like their
freedom, but the proximity of Italy, gives them also a Balkan mentality.
From Budapest Keleti Station you can catch a train to Vienna.
