Budapest description

The Hungarians arrived in the territory in the late 9th century. The area was pillaged by the Mongols in 1241. Buda, the settlements on the west bank of the river, became one of the centres of Renaissance humanist culture by the 15th century.

After the reconquest of Buda in 1686, the region entered a new age of prosperity. Pest-Buda became a global city with the unification of Buda, Obuda, and Pest on 17 November 1873, with the name 'Budapest' given to the new capital.

Budapest also became the co-capital of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, a great power that dissolved in 1918, following World War I.

Budapest is cited as one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, ranked as "the world's second best city" by Conde Nast Traveler, and "Europe's 7th most idyllic place to live" by Forbes.

The central area of the city along the Danube River is classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and has many notable monuments, including the Hungarian Parliament, Buda Castle, Fisherman's Bastion, Gresham Palace, Szechenyi Chain Bridge, Matthias Church and the Liberty Statue.

The city also has around 80 geothermal springs, the largest thermal water cave system and third largest Parliament building in the world.

The origins of the names "Buda" and "Pest" are obscure. The first name probably comes from: Buda was probably the name of the first constable of the fortress built on the Castle Hill in the 11th century; or a derivative of Bod or Bud, a personal name of Turkic origin, meaning 'twig'; or a Slavic personal name, Buda, the short form of Budimir, Budivoj.

According to a legend recorded in chronicles from the Middle Ages, "Buda" comes from the name of its founder, Bleda, brother of Hunnic ruler Attila.
