The name Budapest is a real riddle, where of the three Hungarian cities, Buda, Pest and Obuda, there is one, combining three different atmospheres, and at the same time the letters. And as a memento of this fusion was the Chain Bridge, which is painted in all the tourist photographic films. In Budapest there are many amazing surprises, which are enough for several full trips. The most important one is gastronomic, because Hungarians can create something fantastic from meat, even an ordinary goulash can be found in Michelin restaurants! Budapest loves riddles, and Ernő Rubik created one for the whole world – the Rubik’s cube. And this mystery line was continued by the world’s main illusionist – Harry Houdini, who was born in Budapest. This is the hottest city in the world, not only because of the 70 million liters of thermal water that flow right under the city, but also because of the music! Every August the measured lifestyle of Europeans turns into a cheerful and sleepless because of the music festival “Sziget”, which brings together hundreds of thousands of music lovers from around the world and lasts a week. And there are many more of the “most” that fit into this pompous, full of art, European spirit, and delicious gastronomy city. Remember the picture from the movie “The Grand Budapest”?
