Budapest Architecture – Introduction

Budapest is the capital of Hungary and with about 1.7 million inhabitants. The city straddles the river Danube and is the largest in East-Central Europe and the seventh largest in the European Union. It is the biggest city in Hungary. Budapest became a single city in 1873 when west-bank Buda and Óbuda unified with east-bank Pest.
