Touch down Budapest, capital of Hungary!
Budapest is the tenth-largest city in the European Union by population within city limits. When I arrived, I didn’t know what to expect of Budapest! I know that it is a beautiful city and with beautiful architecture--plus the fact that it actually in my bucket list but haven’t had the chance to put it in realization; so it's about time to explore the eastern Europe!
I must say that Budapest has strengths in commerce, finance, media, art, fashion, research, technology, education, and entertainment!!
The central area of the city along the Danube River is classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and has many notable monuments, including the Hungarian Parliament, Buda Castle, Fisherman's Bastion, Gresham Palace, Széchenyi Chain Bridge, Matthias Church and the Liberty Statue. Many of these will be in my next post. Another famous landmarks include Andrássy Avenue, St. Stephen's Basilica, Heroes' Square, the Great Market Hall, the Nyugati Railway Station built by the Eiffel Company of Paris in 1877 and the second-oldest metro line in the world, the Millennium Underground Railway. The city also has around 80 geothermal springs, the largest thermal water cave system, second largest synagogue, and third largest Parliament building in the world.
