Budapest has shed its socialist past and recaptured much of the cosmopolitan spirit that it had in the first half of the 20th century.
The city is divided into two halves by the Danube River and was formally two distinct cities, Buda on the western bank and Pest on the eastern bank. Buda is a popular residential area, while Pest is the city’s commercial core and home to many industries and businesses.

Although it accounts for most of the industry in Hungary, Budapest is more than just a political, cultural and commercial hub. Budapest is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. Alongside the beautiful architecture and UNESCO world heritage sites, Budapest offers residents a range of world-class shopping opportunities and some of the best nightlife in Europe.
While easily one of the most walk-able cities in Europe, Budapest also has an excellent transportation network, which makes living without a car easy and stress-free. The metro is primarily a Pest operation, with two lines covering wide north-south and east-west arcs and a third, smaller line connecting the center with the City Park . Buda is dominated by a complex tram and bus system.
