As an art historian and tour guide in Budapest
In spite of all the values of the Hungarian capital, for a long time it was only a one-day getaway for the Americans, halfway between Prague and Rome, a huge change from the fact that tourists are traveling here for Budapest. Huge, but real from what is constantly being fed by many surprising news. For a tour guide Budapest who was born in Budapest and lives here, the change is even more remarkable. Now I have found a compilation in which Budapest has been selected as one of the most beautiful in the world. UCityGuides top ten lists include Venice, Paris, Prague, Lisbon, Rio, Amsterdam, Florence, Rome, Bruges and, surprisingly, Budapest. Okay, the European water head is strong, some North American or Asian city is screaming missing from the list, but it can still be proud of Budapest's ninth place.
