In the heart of central Europe is Budapest, Hungary, a cultural melting pot, balanced between East and West. Budapest is the capital of Hungary, a nation formed by ten centuries of history. Budapest has two sides, which are divided by the river Danube: the landscape of hills and classic scenery in the residential "Buda" and the rushing, metropolitan city life of "Pest," with its boulevards, avenues, districts of hidden clubs, historical cafe houses and wine restaurants. Budapest has a wonderful architectural and historical variety with thousand year old ruins from the Roman Empire, the amazing Royal Palace and castle district, it's Turkish baths from the 16th century, the Citadel Fortress from the times of the Austro-Hungarian Empire in the 19th century, the world's largest synagogue, to the footprints of communism, and two revolutions.
