|Budapest is one of the
most beautiful city in the world. That has developed where it is not
down to some historical accident. Take a
look at Gellet Hill, right next
to the River Danube as it flows majestically through the center of the
modern city. It was precisely the combination of the relative ease of
crossing the River here and the natural protection the hill offered
against invasion that decided the earliest settlers it was the ideal place
to build a town.
The capital city of Hungary, Budapest was created out of the unification
of the separate historic towns of Buda, Pest and Obuda in 1873. Whilst the
area had been inhabited from early times, it was from this date that the
city's expansion into a world capital really began. Budapest is bisected
by the River Danube, with the city as much a natural geographical center
as it is country's transport hub.
