Budapest, great city, cosmopolitan and varied.
I spent 6 beautiful days there, living in a flat in the Old Jewish Neighbourhood, which is so closed to the city center. I really liked the atmosphere and the nice little coffee shops and all kind of restaurants.
We had the chance to see two villages outside Budapest: Godollo and Szentendre.
I found them quite touristic, especially the last one, and very lively.
Budapest is one of the nicest places I have visisted so far.
As the largest city of Hungary, it serves as the country's principal political, cultural, commercial, industrial, andtransportation center and is considered an important hub in Central Europe
Originally Budapest had 10 districts after coming into existence upon the unification of the three cities in 1873. On 1 January, 1950 Budapest was united with several neighboring towns and the number of its districts was raised to 22 (Greater Budapest). At that time there were changes both in the order of districts and in their sizes. Now there are 23 districts, 6 in Buda, 16 inPest and 1 on Csepel Island between them. Each district can be associated with one or more city parts named after former towns within Budapest.
Seven islands can be found on the Danube: Shipyard Island, Margaret Island, Csepel Island, Palotai-sziget (now a peninsula), Népsziget, Háros-sziget, and Molnár-sziget.
