Budapest, the capital city of Hungary, sits on the widely spreading Danube river, the second longest one in Europe. It used to divide the city into two parts. Thus, the two cities had been developing independently of each other, level Pest and hilly Buda.
Although nowhere else in its course does the river create such an incredible atmosphere of a city - the Budapest panorama from the Danube boulevards is truly breathtaking - a keen observer will quickly notice the dual nature of the city. Older Buda, which used to be the country’s original capital, and cosmopolitan Pest, a former handicraft and commercial centre. Nowadays, both banks are linked by numerous picturesque bridges, most importantly of all - Chain Bridge.
Budapest has also been famous as a health resort, owing to its plentiful therapeutic thermal springs. Some of them are used for ingestive treatments, while others for baths. There are many public baths in town, the warmest two of which reach the temperatures of 74 and 76 degrees centigrade.
The city is also Hungary’s important cultural hub with its numerous museums and galleries. Moreover, it is an academic centre and the seat of University of Budapest and Academy of Fine Arts. The highest elevation in town is Janos Hill (527 metres above sea level), while the steepest slope cutting sharply into the river is picturesque Gellert Hill.
