Budapest - Frau Matilda our tour guide said and explained to us in a funny but interesting way about the history of the Hungarian people. In the 9th Century 7 tribes of people from the center of Asia out of any reason, (who knows?) immigrated and found this hardly inhabitat place. Some Slavek people had been living there. They came to this place which was called " Pest" means fireplace in Slavik and the word "Buda" means the same in their language. Their leader of the 7 tribes , Atilla, decided to settle there. For centuries they kept their identity, their language until today. In the 19th century, they became proud to have their own State. Being surrounded by powerful Slavik and German Empires, they became part of the Austrian Empire that time. Middle of the 19th century, they became more powerful and decided to be on their own State. In that time Architecht and Artists and organizers and Politicians decided to build their own Hungarian Capital, Budapest. So what we can see today it's not very old, only about 150 years old. In 896 these seven tribes arrived in what is now Hungary. Whatever we see the cathedral, the Parlament, Basilica are all build 96 meters high, for their thousands anniversary in 1896.
Budapest one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. The capital city of Hungary, Budapest is the country's center principal of political, historical, culture, transportation and more. The bridges over the River Danube is a wonderful scenery in the city day and night. We also visited the Parlament a fascinating architecture, the Fisherman's Bastion and the St. Stephen's Basilica.
