Zurück zur Donauüberblick

Many of my friends have suggested that I should visit Budapest. Finally, the opportunity sent me to this most beautiful city in Europe - possibly the most beautiful city in the world.

Just one look at the parliament building on the left gives you a clue as to the incredible architectural feat that went into building this city.

The Hungarians themselves, were very friendly and helpful everywhere we went. They still enjoy continuing the tradition of folkdancing and Friday and Saturday nights, there is partying in the streets throughout the entire city.

It was erected in a location where it can be seen from nearly everywhere in Budapest. It is in the form of a lady with a palm branch lifted to the sky.
