Learn What It's Like to Live in Budapest

Budapest has a fascinating history and culture, forever to be shaped by the events of the 20th century when it spent over 40 years behind the Iron Curtain. The second city of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and one of the most beautiful in Europe, it was part of the Communist Bloc up until the fall of the Berlin Wall. Yet beyond the tower blocks, Budapest retains much of its fine architecture, influenced by various styles. As the economy has revived over the last 25 years, the capital has regained its cosmopolitan spirit, making it a welcoming city to visitors and expats from abroad. Dominated by the magnificent Buda Castle, which sits on the banks of the Danube, Budapest is a stunning urban center. But more so, it is an exciting place to be — an artsy paradise where there is always something going on. Visitors may come to explore the old town, the Turkish baths, the parks and fine boulevards, but they find much more than the historical landmarks and vibrant nightlife. They discover a forward-thinking city, with sprawling suburbs and excellent transport links — a cultural melting pot, with a warm climate, in the heart of Eastern Europe. More people are choosing to move to the Hungarian capital, recognizing a world of opportunities for both work and life.
