Queen of the Danube
Budapest boasts one of the most amazing urban landscapes of the world. The city is divided into two parts by the river Danube. On its left, Pest is lying on a plain, while the right side Buda is settled on a hilly area with excellent lookout posts.
The city is rich in nature: it has long river banks, thermal springs, a sunny climate and a great vegetation. Even grapes and figs can be produced on the sunny southern slopes. Many local people enjoy hiking in the forests of the city. If you keep silent, you can even see a deer or a wild-boar. There are long stalactite caves in the depth of the hills. They were carved out by thermal water during millions of years. Most of them are open for visitors.
Budapest is a city of hot springs. It is the only capital of the world with natural thermal springs in its very center. There are more than 100 of them which feed 11 medical spas. They welcome visitors and are fun comfortable places for people of all ages to gather.
