Travel inspiration in Budapest and Berlin
Budapest, the capital city of Hungary
Budapest is the capital city of Hungary and also its largest city. The city is divided in two parts by the Danube River. The left bank is called Buda whereas the right bank is called Pest. Many European roads and railway lines lead to Budapest, which makes it an important city in terms of traffic exchange. Budapest is generally not our first choice destination when we are thinking holidays. Contrary to what most of us think, Budapest is an exciting city which can without doubt match the other capitals of Europe. With its architectural wealth, global flair, rich culture and spas, Budapest is a booming metropolis.
An interesting fact about Budapest is that is the only capital city in the world which has thermal springs. Indeed approximately 125 springs produce 70 million litres of thermal water a day. The thermal springs are known to have medicinal effects due to their valuable mineral contents.
Berlin, capital of Germany
Berlin is the capital of Germany and also its largest city. It is located in the northeast of the country and is home to more than 4 million people. Did you know that Berlin is 9 times bigger than Paris and has 1,700 bridges, more than Venice?
After the World War II, the city was divided into two parts surrounded by the Berlin Wall. In 1989 the wall was destroyed, followed by the German reunification in 1990. As a result, Berlin regained its status as the capital of Germany. Having bounced back confidently from 20th century division, Berlin is has become one of Europe’s most exciting destinations.
Today Berlin, home to a multicultural population, is a city of culture, media, science and creativity.
