UNESCO World Heritage Site #138: Budapest, including the Banks of the Danube, the Buda Castle Quarter and Andrássy Avenue

From the World Heritage inscription:

This site has the remains of monuments such as the Roman city of Aquincum and the Gothic castle of Buda, which have had a considerable influence on the architecture of various periods. It is one of the world’s outstanding urban landscapes and illustrates the great periods in the history of the Hungarian capital.

I spent several days in Budpest but I’d go back in a heartbeat. I feel like I barely scratched the surface of the city. Central Europe was a part of the world that I never learned much about in history class. Hungary was in WWI and the Soviet Block and that’s about it. This is a very rich city in terms of culture, history and architecture. The goulash isn’t bad either.

    A Great Photo! Brings back many pleasant memories even though it has been over 20 years since I have been there. I second your comment. I would go back again as well.
