For more than fifty years prior to the Second World War, Budapest was one of the outstanding cultural capitals of Central Europe, on a par with, and in some ways in advance of Vienna and Prague. Now no longer hidden behind the Iron Curtain, much of that old atmosphere has returned. With its rich and often turbulent history, its unique thermal baths, its excellent public transport system, its street cafs and broadranging cultural scene, Budapest is a captivating metropolis, currently being rediscovered as one of the liveliest cities in the region.
