BUDAPEST - JULY 1978

ANOTHER UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE SITE

A BEAUTIFUL CITY IN THE BANKS OF THE DANUBE


"ON A MISTY DAY - View from the Citadel: the tourists, the Castle, the River and the Parliament"


"FROM BUDA WITH LOVE - The Danube, Margaret Island, Margaret and the Parliament"


"DANUBE, and the Chain Bridge"


"CLOSE-UP, Parliament, Danube, Chain Bridge"


"BUDA - A look out at the panoramic view of the whole city from the Fishermen’s Bastion is an absolute must! In the Castle District there are 3 churches, 6 museums, and many interesting buildings. The former Royal Palace, the Sándor Palace (official residence of the President of Hungary), the 700 year-old Matthias Church and the Fishermen’s Bastion are around the corner"


"CASTLE DISTRICT - Fountain"


"HEROES' SQUARE - dominated by the Millenary Monument, with the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in front. To the sides are the Museum of Fine Arts and the Palace of Arts, and behind City Park"


"PARLIAMENT - Outside is magnificent, inside you have the Hungarian Crown Jewels"


"PARLIAMENT - It looks fabulous seen from the Danube: Ladies' Tea Party""


"PARLIAMENT - You won't get tired of looking at such a building"


"MARGARET ISLAND - Budapest's finest green spot is located in the middle of the river Danube between Margaret Bridge and Árpád Bridge. Originally there were three islands - Spa, Pictor and Rabbits. These were framed with a common concrete shore as part of river regulation efforts in the 19th century and so the 2.5-kilometre-long island was formed"



"CHAIN BRIDGE - In 1873, after the building of the first permanent bridge over the Danube, occurred the legislative unification of Buda, Pest and Óbuda into one city: BUDAPEST"
