Budapest is Hungary’s capital and most populous city. It is the ninth-largest city in the European Union in terms of population inside city boundaries, with a population of 1,752,286 people living on a land area of around 525 square kilometers (203 square miles). Budapest, which is both a city and a county, is the heart of the Budapest metropolitan region, which spans 7,626 square kilometers (2,944 square miles) and is home to 3,303,786 people, accounting for 33 percent of Hungary’s population.

When an early Celtic village became the Roman town of Aquincum, the capital of Lower Pannonia, Budapest’s narrative started. The country was first settled by the Hungarians in the late ninth century, but it was pillaged by the Mongols in 1241″42. By the 15th century, Buda had been restored and had become one of the most important centers of Renaissance humanist culture. Following the Battle of Mohács in 1526, the Ottomans ruled for over 150 years. The region experienced a new era of wealth with the reconquest of Buda in 1686, with Pest-Buda becoming a worldwide city after the union of Buda, Buda and Pest on November 17, 1873, with the new capital given the name ‘Budapest.’ Budapest was also the co-capital of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, a strong power that fell apart after World War I in 1918. The city was the epicenter of the 1848 Hungarian Revolution, the Battle of Budapest in 1945, and the 1956 Hungarian Revolution.

The Hungarian Parliament and Buda Castle are among the many noteworthy structures of classical architecture in Budapest’s core district, which is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site along the Danube River. There are over 80 geothermal springs in the city, as well as the world’s biggest thermal water cave system, second largest synagogue, and third largest Parliament building.

Celts constructed the first colony on Budapest’s land before the year 1 AD. The Romans later took over the city. In 106 AD, the Roman village of Aquincum became the capital of Pannonia Inferior. It began as a military outpost, but as the city grew around it, it became the center of the city’s economic activity. Today, this area corresponds to Budapest’s Buda district. In this walled military camp, the Romans built roads, amphitheaters, spas, and residences with heated floors. The Roman city of Aquincum is the most well-preserved of Hungary’s Roman sites. The archaeological site has been transformed into a museum with both indoor and outdoor exhibits.
