Budapest /ˈbuːdəpɛst/ (Hungarian: [ˈbudɒpɛʃt]) is the capital and the largest city of Hungary, and one of the largest cities in the European Union. It is the country's principal political, cultural, commercial, industrial, and transportation centre, sometimes described as the primate city of Hungary. In 2011, according to the census, Budapest had 1.74 million inhabitants, down from its 1989 peak of 2.1 million due to suburbanisation. The Budapest Metropolitan Area is home to 3.3 million people. The city covers an area of 525 square kilometres (202.7 sq mi) within the city limits. Budapest became a single city occupying both banks of the river Danube with its unification on 17 November 1873 of Buda Wikipedia Icon and Óbuda Wikipedia Icon, on the west bank, with Pest Wikipedia Icon, on the east bank.

The history of Budapest began with Aquincum Wikipedia Icon, originally a Celtic settlement that became the Roman capital of Pannonia Inferior.Hungarians arrived in the territory in the 9th century. Their first settlement was pillaged by the Mongols in 1241–42. The re-established town became one of the centres of Renaissance humanist culture in the 15th century. Following the Battle of Mohács and nearly 150 years of Ottoman rule, the region entered a new age of prosperity in the 18th and 19th centuries, and Budapest became a global city after its unification in 1873. It also became the second capital of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, a great power that dissolved in 1918, following World War I. Budapest was the focal point of the Hungarian Revolution of 1848, the Hungarian Republic of Councils of 1919, Operation Panzerfaust in 1944, the Battle of Budapest in 1945, and the Revolution of 1956.

Cited as one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, Budapest's extensive World Heritage Site includes the banks of the Danube , the Buda Castle Wikipedia Icon Quarter, Andrássy Avenue Wikipedia Icon, Heroes' Square Wikipedia Icon and the Millennium Underground Railway Wikipedia Icon, the second-oldest metro line in the world.
