Interesting Facts About Budapest

Budapest is a city that was built by the Celts, occupied by the Romans, unified by the Magyar tribes, conquered by the Turkish, retaken by the Hungarians, and then united with the Austrians before finding its definitive independence in 1920 — no wonder it embodies such cultural diversity!

The word Hungarian is believed to derive from the Oghur, a branch of the Turkic language family, meaning “Ten Tribes“. The city itself is a display of three separate regions, unified: Buda, Pest, and Óbuda.

The Banks of the Danube, the Buda Castle, and Andrássy Avenue were declared UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 1987, and today, Budapest is one of the most alluring destinations for travelers who seek to experience a city that is a historical affirmation of movement, complexity, diversity, and unification.
