Budapest, the capital
city of Hungary is the largest city in the country. It is

commercial centre where about 1.7 million people live although the
area is home to more than 3 million.
The first settlement dates back to 1 AD built by the Celts and later the place was occupied by Romans. Hungarians settled in the Carpathian basin in the 9th century, their leader was Arpad. During the history of Hungary lots of different nations came and go in the territory, among them Bulgarians, Tatars, later Turkish and Habsburg and some people say that is the reason why Hungarian women are so beautiful!
Budapest is divided into two parts by the River Danube separating the more vivid Pest and the calmer and more relaxed Buda part which used to be separate cities until 1873. Since then Buda, Obuda and Pest have been one city, Budapest.
