The Danube River divides Hungary's capital city of Budapest into Buda and Pest respectively, the former being primarily the "green" residential belt, and the latter the industrial and financial hub. Budapest can lay claim to one of the most spectacular panoramic views in Europe. 

Often referred to as "the city of spas" Budapest is one of Central Europe's most dynamic and vibrant cities, as well as being one of the region's economic and financial centers. Politically and culturally the capital is the heart of Hungary, with one third of the country's population living in its direct sphere of influence.
The combination of favorable natural characteristics and millennia of building created the current Budapest, which the world's travelers appropriately consider to be one of the most beautiful capitals of the world.
In 1987, the UNESCO World Heritage Committee added the Buda Castle District, Gellért Hill, the Hungarian Parliament, and the Downtown St.Stephen's Basilica, along with the bridges connecting them, to its world cultural heritage list because of their exceptional value and rare beauty enhancing the city scene.
Budapest has a myriad of attractions to visit: the historical sights of the Buda Castle and its surroundings, a plethora of Roman and Turkish baths, the panorama from Gellért Hill, the Margaret Island with its rich flora, the permanent and temporary exhibitions in the numerous museums, the streets and buildings of the greater Downtown, one of Europe's biggest art-cinema and theatre networks, the open-air and indoor cafés and restaurants, the world famous symphony concerts and operas are all part of Budapest's perpetual treasures.
Overall the city provides a great variety of fascinating sights, spectacular events and exciting activities. The internationally reknowned Spring and Autumn Festivals offer a variety of respected artists' work for culture-loving audiences. The Budapest Fair, the Bridge Festival in the middle of the summer, Pepsi Island, and countless other carnivals draw a large number of tourists virtually all year round.
