Buda and Pest

Observations of Eastern Europe and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development from 2003 to 2009


Hungary’s Budapest is a cultured sophisticated and very European city. The magnificent architecture is a tribute to the glory days of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Some of the buildings are incredible, the restaurants are good and ‘to take the waters’ in the numerous and extravagant baths is a ‘must do and enjoy’ experience.
