Centuries old city, Budapest is in the heart of Central Europe. It was cosmopolitan, rich, and beautiful, before being pushed by history, scarred by war and communism. But the city wakes up timidly. The historic districts of Buda hill and Belvaros have been rebuilt, the Art-nouveau buildings of Pest renewed. Budapest is cheerful and attractive, although still, and you will discover its treasures and soul on both sides of the majestic Danube and climbing its famous hills. And of course, with all its thermal springs, Budapest is the perfect place for a post-run hot bath in one of the beautiful thermal public palaces.
