Budapest and Surroundings
The city has Celtic origins and has been under the Roman domain with the name of Aquincum. The settlements on the west bank of the river became one of the centres of Renaissance humanist culture by the 15th century. The city was the focal point of the Hungarian Revolution of 1848, the Battle of Budapest in 1945, and the Hungarian Revolution of 1956. Today Budapest is known as the capital of thermal baths. It has a total of nine medicinal baths today (and 123 hot springs). Budapest is also Hungary’s commercial, financial and educational centre with rich cultural life. The centre of the city is classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
