BUDAPEST - BUDA & PEST
Budapest is the capital and largest city of Hungary. The city is split in two by the Danube River into the Buda and Pest areas. Budapest is a beautiful European capital that is largely undiscovered by the common tourist. Today, we will take a look at the two central parts of the city.
