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.


An overview of the city center. Pest is at the top and Buda is located at the bottom of the image.


The Hungarian Parliament Building is the Budapest's most well known building. It is also Hungary's largest building!


The Chain Bridge spans the Danube River and connects Buda and Pest.


Heroes' Square is a major historical and political square in the city.


In the hills of Buda, it is easy to find dozens of red roof buildings overlooking the city.


The Danube Promenade on the Pest side of the city.


Locals can always be found on Margaret Island located in the center of the Danube River. Here, we see a nightly sport match.

I hope you guys enjoyed the last update of 2010! Thank you very much for all the trixie nominations for this CJ! It won the Best City Journal award 4.gif Happy New Year!

and i love the mixing of the stockholm houses with the buda castle part(i've been in both, budapest and stockholm), it's really original and gives the city an european and international style.

I don't know if you still do this CJ, but you have a talent for these recreations. By chance could you do a Seattle one? I know Maxis already provides the Columbia Center and Smith tower.
