The jewel of Eastern Europe
This is the story of my four days in the capital of Hungary to discover the two facets of Budapest. Buda, the old town perched on its promontory and Pest the modern city sitting just below.
The journey starts in the old town of Buda. To the north of the Royal Castle, perched on the same ridge, the narrow streets of the Old Walled City stand out from the rest of the capital.
To get there, just take the funicular at the down station just in from of the Chain Bridge.
