The venue & activities:
Often described as the "Little Paris of Middle Europe", Budapest is famous for the monuments reflecting its own 1,000-year-old culture. The capital has two sides, Buda and Pest, stretching along the banks of the Danube, representing two different characters of the city.
Suburban Buda and its historic castle district offer medieval streets and houses, museums, caves and Roman ruins. The dynamic Pest side boasts the largest parliament building in Europe, riverside promenades, flea markets, bookstores, antique stores and café houses. Even Lonely Planet thinks Budapest has the best bars in the world with its ruin pubs. In 1987 Budapest was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List for the cultural and architectural significance of the Banks of the Danube, the Buda Castle Quarter and Andrássy Avenue.
Budapest has a lot to offer. Museums and galleries, churches and synagogues, palaces and historic buildings are presented together with the influence of Secession in the city. Hungary is a land of thermal springs, and Budapest remains the only capital city in the world that is rich in thermal waters with healing qualities, therefor Budapest is also called as the 'City of Baths'.
