Budapest is not a city of homeless people

Oh, and hooked yesterday some ...
No, of course, Budapest is not a city of homeless people. Although there are not enough of them, but still, Budapest is, first of all, a very beautiful city, with its own charm, character and recognition. It really can be called one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
And the truth is, there are faceless cities that you will not recognize from the picture right away, but there are those that you have no doubt about. Budapest I refer to the second option.
Despite the homeless (ahaha), despite the garbage and dirt on the streets, the city touched and liked me. Architecture, bridges, trams, people and merry nightlife ...

2. Anyone who has visited Budapest will tell you that it’s not enough for anyone to leave the beauty of this city; it’s enough just to come to its center.
Each building is a separate architectural masterpiece. Every bridge, every new kind of street lamps and even sewer manholes.
It's amazing how rich this city is in beautiful places. Without exaggeration, almost every building can be photographed from all directions.
But what is so special about Budapest? Why is that?
The second half of the XIX century - a time when the cities of Europe almost simultaneously received a new look and style. As soon as the need for city walls, moats and watchtowers, parks, boulevards and beautiful embankments began to appear.
Other capitals have changed and rebuilt, this city has kept everything - up to the copper handles on the doors of bank halls and the famous red mailboxes. Budapest looks like what Europe looked like if World War I had not started in 1914.

3. “Golden Age”, “beautiful era” (La belle epoque) or “peaceful times” (békeidők) - time from the union of Buda, Pest and Obuda in 1873 to the collapse of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy in 1918.
In the spring of 1838, the Danube spread more than usual. The great flood destroyed thousands of houses in Pest, which lies 60 m below Buda. So there was a place for new development. In addition, Budapest since 1867 became one of the two capitals of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The status obliged to reconstruction, and the dates prompted the anniversary - in 1896, the country was going to solemnly celebrate the Millennium of gaining the motherland. In this interval between the flood and the anniversary, the new buildings of Pest were put in, in which history and eclecticism are intertwined.On the facades there is a whole set of decorative elements invented by architects of all times: caryatids and mascarons, columns and pilasters, various gables, lion faces and flower garlands, cartouches, volutes and many more different ...

4. A separate story here - bridges. They are in the city of 8 and ve they connect two parts of the city - Buda and Pest, between which flows the largest river in Europe, the Danube. The most beautiful for me is the Chain Bridge and the Bridge of Freedom (in the photo). Until 1946, it was called the Franz Joseph Bridge (the emperor took part in its discovery, therefore this name was fixed). Like other bridges, the Freedom Bridge was blown up in 1945 by the retreating fascists, but the following year it was restored and got its modern name.

5. The Chain Bridge or the Cross Section Bridge is an enlarged copy of the Marlow Bridge, which was built in the eponymous British city. This bridge was the first in the city, which is why it is quite difficult to overestimate its importance for Budapest. The opening of the crossing took place in the middle of the XIX century, and at that time it was considered one of the longest in the world. The central span of the bridge was 202 meters.

6. The streets in the historic part of the city are no less beautiful.Despite the devastating war, despite the German bombings, despite the globalization and urbanization of the cities. Budapest has not lost its charm
