Budapest is the capital of Hungary and is separated by the River Danube. One of its top attractions is the 19th-century Chain Bridge, which joins the hilly Buda district with flat Pest. In addition, visitors and locals can check out the funicular that runs up Castle Hill to Buda’s Old Town. You can find the Budapest History Museum in this area, displaying city life from Roman times and beyond. Finally, Trinity Square is where you can visit the 13th-century Matthias Church and the turrets of the stunning views of the Fishermen’s Bastion.
As previously mentioned, Budapest was officially initiated as a city on November 17th, 1873, due to the merging of the Pest, Buda, and Óbuda. Later, around AD 100, the Roman Empire conquered the area, which established the fortress and town of Aquincum where today’s Budapest resides.
In 2016, the population of Budapest was recorded at 1.756 million people.
