Hungary: People

Hungary: People pictures. Hungary is a beautiful little country in Eastern Europe with one of the greatest capital cities in the world, several baroque towns, many small villages, rolling hills and one of the largest lakes in Europe: Balaton. The lively capital, Budapest, is a fascinating mix of a multitude of styles, and has an overwhelming atmosphere which is best experienced randomly wandering among its rambling buildings. Budapest is separated into two parts (Buda and Pest) by the Danube river: Pest (including downtown Budapest) is the flat one, and Buda is a rather hilly area, including two of the best vantage points of the city: Castle Hill (housing the quaint Castle District) and Gellért Hill.

The gallery also contains pictures of some of the most interesting smaller towns of Hungary: Pécs, a cheerful university town with much medieval and Turkish heritage; Szeged, a town in the Great Plains whose most characteristic landmark is its unique cathedral; Debrecen, the second largest city in Hungary, having a beautiful and atmospheric downtown; and which has a superb location along the Danube bend, with a medieval castle perched above it on a hill providing great views of the surrounding mountains.
