Budapest is the capital of Hungary.
Modern Budapest was born in 1873, when Buda, buda and Pest were officially joined. Today, the city is composed of 23 districts (kerletek), each designated on maps, street signs and addresses by Roman numerals (I to XXIII). Buda and Pest still remain distinct, however, creating a fascinating west bank-east bank contrast. Hilly Buda in the west is laced with narrow cobbled streets and packed with a mixture of medieval and neoclassical buildingsalmost totally reconstructed after WWII. Flat Pest lies to the east, its wide boulevards and art nouveau structures testimony to the boom Budapest experienced in the years before WWI.
The Chain Bridge (Szchenyi lnchd) is the central point of Budapest. From here, hilly Buda is to the west and the plains of commercial Pest are to the east. A steep climb in the Sikl, the 19th-century funicular, leads to Budas Castle Hill, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where many attractions are clustered.Trinity Square is at the heart of the district and usually thronging with tourists.
New clubs and discos are constantly sprouting up all over Budapest especially around VII Liszt Ferenc tr and IX Rday utca. The bars offer something for everybody and there is plenty of space to experiment. Many bars are open until dawn, although most close at around 0400. Borozs are cheap wine cellars, where it is rare to see women, especially unaccompanied. Srzs are beer houses that will also serve good and moderately priced food. The minimum drinking age is 18 years.
