Budapest is the capitol and largest city of Hungary. It originated as a Celtic city sometime before 1 A.D. and was later made into a Roman settlement called Aquincum. For the majority of history, Budapest was actually two cities, Buda and Pest, but they grew together and were combined in 1873.

Budapest is revered as one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, known for its architecture, geothermal baths, financing headquarters, modern transportation, and elegance.
