5. Introduction of Budapest

Often described as the "Little Paris of Middle Europe", Budapest is famous not only for the monuments reflecting its own 1,000-year-old culture, but also for the relics of others who settled here. The river Danube runs through the middle of the metropolis of two million, dividing hilly Buda from the Pest plain. Because of the picturesque panorama offered by the river and its bridges, the Parliament, the imposing Royal Castle, Fishermen’s Bastion and the impressive Danube Embankment, UNESCO placed this site on the World heritage list.
