City of the Grand Prix Winner CACIB Show


Budapest is the capital of Hungary, is a beautiful and exciting city, located in the heart of Europe often called as the “Little Paris of Middle Europe”.

Budapest is the historic political, cultural and financial capital of Hungary. With a metropolitan area population of about 1.7 million, comprising 20 percent of the country’s population, Budapest is Hungary’s most densely populated metropolitan area.

The city of Budapest was officially created on 17 November 1873 from a merger of the three neighboring cities of Pest, Buda and Óbuda. Smaller towns on the outskirts of the original city were amalgamated into Greater Budapest in 1950. The origins of Budapest can be traced to Celts who occupied the plains of Hungary in the 4th century BC. The area was later conquered by the Roman Empire, which established the fortress and town of Aquincum on the site of today’s Budapest around AD 100. The Romans were expelled in the 5th century by the Huns, who were challenged by various tribes during the next several centuries. The Hungarian conquest of the Carpathian Basin started at the end of the 9th century, and the Kingdom of Hungary was established at the end of the 11th century. From around 1300 to the incorporation of 1873, Buda was the capital of the Kingdom of Hungary for five periods of less than a century each.

The historical monuments and the diverse city quarters reflect the city’s own 1 000 years old culture and history, the Buda Castle with the ancient town district; the St. Stephen’s Basilica, the Parliament and the Chain Bridge are the symbols of it.

Standing on the banks of the Danube River, the Hungarian Parliament is a notable landmark of Hungary, and a popular tourist destination in Budapest, which is situated in Kossuth Square. It is currently the largest building in Hungary, and the stunning example of neo-Gothic architectureand, it was designed by Hungarian architect, Imre Steindl, and opened in 1904. Built between 1885 and 1904 the Budapest Parliament became the symbol of the Hungarian capital. Not just becuse its sheer size – nearly 18000 square metres – but because of its detailed decoration, inside splendour and eclectic diversity.

The Parliament Building has a symmetrical façade and a central dome. The Parliament inside is also symmetrical and thus has two absolutely identical parliament halls of which one is used for politics, the other for guided tours. Home to Hungary’s National Assembly, the building also houses the nation’s crown, worn by 50 rulers, and dating back to the 12th century.

Parliament buildingIt is the most expensive building ever built in Hungary. The building has 691 rooms, 10 courtyards, 27 gates and 29 staircases. It also houses a public library with 500.000 volumes. The walls from outside are decorated by the statues of the most important historical figures of Hungary. The building is it stretches along the Pest side of the Danube between the Chainbridge and Margaret Bridge. As a traveler in Budapest, the Parliament building is one of the sights of the city that you have to visit.

Saint Stephen’s Basilica is the most important religious building of the city, where the Holy Right Hand of Hungary’s first king, Saint Stephen is on display as well.

In the Castle District are three churches, six museums, and a host of interesting buildings, streets and squares. The former Royal Palace is one of the symbols of Hungary – and has been the scene of battles and wars ever since the 13th century. Nowadays it houses two impressive museums and the National Széchenyi Library. The nearby Sándor Palace contains the offices and official residence of the President of Hungary.

The seven-hundred-year-old Matthias Church is one of the jewels of Budapest, it is in neo-Gothic style, decorated with coloured shingles and elegant pinnacles. Next to it is an equestrian statue of the first king of Hungary, King Saint Stephen, and behind that is the Fisherman’s Bastion, built in 1905 by the architect Frigyes Schulek, the Fishermen’s Bastions owes its name to the namesake corporation that during the Middle Ages was responsible of the defence of this part of ramparts, from where opens out a panoramic view of the whole city. Statues of the Turul, the mythical guardian bird of Hungary, can be found in both the Castle District and the Twelfth District.

Budapest is a global city with strengths in commerce, finance, media, art, fashion, research, technology, education, and entertainment. It is Hungary’s financial centre and was ranked as the second fastest-developing urban economy in Europe. Over 40 colleges and universities are located in Budapest, including the Eötvös Loránd University, the Semmelweis University and the Budapest University of Technology and Economics. Opened in 1896, the city’s subway system, the Budapest Metro, serves 1.27 million, while the Budapest Tram Network serves 1.08 million passengers daily.

Budapest attracts around 12 million international tourists per year, making it a highly popular destination in Europe. The city was chosen as the Best European Destination of 2019, a major poll conducted by EBD, a tourism organisation partnering with the European Commission. EBD writes on their website about Budapest that “the pearl of the Danube is not only the best European destination, it is also one of the most beautiful and safest cities in the world. Budapest offers the elegance of Paris, the architectural heritage of Vienna, the charm of Porto, Stockholm’s gentle way of life.”

Take the time to admire the pearl of the Danube, this wonderful city, the attractive Budapest!
