Quotes about Budapest
â€œBudapest is a prime site for dreams: the Eastâ€™s exuberant vision of the West, the Westâ€™s uneasy hallucination of the East. It is a dreamed-up city; a city almost completely faked; a city invented out of other cities, out of Paris by way of Vienna â€” the imitation, as Claudio Magris has it, of an imitation.â€
“The heart and soul of Central Europe, Budapest excites good travelers… and exasperates bad ones. I love this city for its flaws as much as for its persistent personality”.
Rick Steves, Budapest
Bestriding the Danube, Hungary’s capital is not one city but two. Buda, with its medieval streets and imperial palaces, rises on the west side of the river; Pest, the commercial and political hub of modern Hungary, lines the east. Together they make up one of Europe’s most enchanting cities.

“The grandeur of Budapest in its glory days at the beginning of the 20th Century was found in the central city on the Pest side of the Danube.

Budapest: A History of Grandeur and Catastrophe, by Joe Hajdu
“… but this room, smack in the center of the massive parliament building on the Danube, in the middle of a city that had been bombed to hell by the Soviets only a couple of years earlier, had me counting the columns, and admiring the gold and the statues”.
Budapest in Pieces (Alex Kovacs thriller series Book 10), by Richard Wake
“Hungarians have been “taking the waters” supplied by an estimated 300 thermal springs since togas were all the rage and Aquincum (Roman Budapest) was the Big Smoke”.
