Storyline

The city of Budapest, Hungary, the seat of national government, was formed by merging the cities of Buda on the left bank of the Danube River and Pest on the right bank. The sights of the city reflect its 1,000 year history, including being part of the former Austro-Hungarian Empire, which disintegrated after the World War. This fact is illustrated by a floral map and flag at half mast in Liberty Square. Some of the main sights in the city are the Store House of the Hungarian Archives, the Széchenyi Chain Bridge completed in 1849, the Royal Palace, Coronation Church (which is only one of several monuments in the city associated with Saint Stephen), the Museum of Agriculture, and the thermal grotto on Margaret's Island which is known for its many spring fed swimming pools. Rivalling any in Europe, it is a cosmopolitan city, whose culture is punctuated by the music of Franz Liszt. Written by Huggo

Beautiful Budapest (1938)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

This TravelTalks entry takes us to Budapest, the capital of Hungary and the biggest commercial and tourist visited place in the country. We get to learn about their long history, the fact that the population had tripled in the matter of years and the fact that there are plenty of geothermal springs that are visited by thousands each year. Once again, if you know what to expect from this series then you're going to find this entry to be pretty good as we get plenty of nice, trivial knowledge and of course the beautiful Technicolor is here to enjoy. The color really comes off well when we're looking at the Danube River as well as plenty of the outdoor pools from the springs. The short also spends the last minute looking over the women of Budapest, which wasn't a normal thing for this series.
