Budapest: Nature

Budapest: Nature pictures. Budapest is one of the greatest capital cities of the world with a wonderful setting along the two banks of the Danube, a bewildering eclectic architectural heritage and a stunning atmosphere. While not all is rosy in the bustling capital of Hungary (there are tons of neglected and crumbling 100-year-old buildings), Budapest is full of architectural gems (for example iconic Heroes' Square and the Chain Bridge), atmospheric streets, has several pleasant parks and islands, and of course the majestically flowing river Danube, which cuts the city into two parts: Pest and Buda. Pest is completely flat (this includes downtown Budapest), while Buda is a hilly area, and includes two of the most popular vantage points of the city: Castle Hill and Gellért Hill (among these photos you'll find several views from these places).

Óbuda Island (or Shipyard Island) is the site of the huge Student Island festival, organized every year.

Those who only know the summer version of the Island, trodden on by hundreds of thousands of visitors, are often astonished to see its other faces.
