Turbulent History

Even by the time of the Stone Age the area of today’s Budapest had been settled. The Romans later used the base, called Aquincum, as the capital of the province of Pannonia. Attila the Hun founded his kingdom here in the fifth century. Over the course of the following centuries, rule in the area changed several times: From the Avars to the Magyars and then the Turks. Finally, in 1686, Charles of Lorraine eventually reconquered the territories of Óbuda, Buda and Pest for the House of Habsburg from the Turks.
During the Austro-Hungarian monarchy, the city grew rapidly and became one of the most important major cities on the continent.

In 1896, the first subway in Europe was opened in Budapest. After the Second World War, Budapest vanished behind the Iron Curtain, until Hungary opened up once again to the West in 1989.

Today, Budapest has two million inhabitants and is one of the most up-and-coming destinations in Europe. And for good reason: Budapest offers a large number of interesting sights to visit, is a traditional city that is rich in culture, but where sports and entertainment are in no short supply. And naturally, Budapest, with its many thermal springs, is the city of baths!
