Budapest is a meeting point of North and South, East and West. The intercrossing cultures are blended into a unique synthesis, while remaining characteristically Hungarian. Coming to Budapest, you can experience this first-hand. Budapest provides maximum relaxation with its parks, esplanades, or the promenade on the Danube Embankment – it also offers maximum refreshment with its medicinal baths, including Europe’s oldest indoor thermal-water swimming-pool with lidos and sporting facilities. UNESCO has added the Danube panorama with the Castle of Buda to the World Cultural Heritage List.
