Budapest Google maps and factsThat Budapest - one of the most beautiful cities in the world – has developed where it is, is not down to some historical accident. Take a look at Gellért Hill, right next to the River Danube as it flows majestically through the centre of the modern city. It was precisely the combination of the relative ease of crossing the River here and the natural protection the hill offered against invasion that decided the earliest settlers it was the ideal place to build a town. The Eravisci, a tribe of highly cultured Celts, had already settled at Gellért Hill in the third and fourth centuries B.C. They worked with iron, decorated their earthenware pots and even minted their own coins. Later, the Romans built a settlement at today’s Óbuda. They called it Aquincum and it was an important station along the limes which ran alongside the River Danube.
And there are others still who enjoy shopping and sitting in cafés. In Budapest there is all this, and much more besides. From morning till night the parks (particularly the Margaret Island) are full of joggers. There are popular cycle paths springing up. The little lake in City Park is a lovely place in summer for a gentle row; in the winter it is the province of ice skaters. In the winter there is also sledging and skiing at Sváb Hill.
