Budapest, the capital city of Hungary, is among the most delightful and enjoyable cities in Europe. Due to its scenic setting and architecture, the city is often nicknamed “The Paris of the East”. Budapest is a gem of a city yoking together two formerly separate cities, Buda and Pest, which stretching along the opposite sides of the River Danube each offer unique experiences to their visitors.
