Budapest photos

Welcome to Budapest, Hungary's capital and one of Europe's largest and most beautiful cities. The Danube River divides this magnificent city of breathtaking scenery and architecture, known as the "Paris of the East," into two sides: Buda (the hilly side) and Pest (the flat side). The Buda Castle District, the Danube Banks, and Andrássy Avenue in the Hungarian capital are all World Heritage Sites. Enjoy the beauty of Budapest through my twelve photographs.
