With a history encompassing Celts, Romans, Hungarians, Mongols, Ottomans, the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and Hungarian Revolutions (1848 and 1956) into present day commerce, finance, media, art, fashion, research, technology, education, and entertainment it is no wonder that it takes three cities (Buda, Pest and Obuda) to make Budapest.

The central area of Budapest along the Danube River is classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and contains notable classical architecture monuments including the Hungarian Parliament and the Buda Castle. The city also has around 80 geothermal springs, the largest thermal water cave system, second largest synagogue, and third largest Parliament building in the world, all which make it a highly popular destination in Europe.
