    Parliament Budapest, Hungary - Travel Video.
    DVD. Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. In 1867, after many centuries of Habsburger rule, the kingdom of Hungary was finally acknowledged as an official State and a parliament was appointed. London's Houses Of Parliament served as the model for Budapest's new parliament building. The idea was to emphasise to the Hungarian people the positive way that both democracy and the monarchy could be part of the same political system. The magnificent shape of the Budapest Parliament is similar to a palace. Two bronze lions decorate the steps that lead to the main entrance of the splendid government building that symbolised the hopes of a new kingdom. With its 700 rooms and total floor space of 473,000 square metres, for many decades this was the greatest building in the world. And even with its powerful proportions, the Budapest Parliament radiates elegance and grace. At night this architectural symbol of the Hungarian people with its 100 metre high cupolas, lights up the capital and also the dark waters of the Danube.

Budapest's castle district has developed into the Hungarian capital's main attraction, most notably, Fishermen`s Bastion that was built between 1890 and 1905. The greater part of the Gothic, Matthias Cathedral, dates back to the 19th century but of the 16th century buildings, only their foundations remain. Following its original construction in the 14th century, Matthias Cathedral became the setting of several royal coronations. Due to numerous military conflicts, the entire Gothic area of the city was destroyed. The buildings and facades that can be seen today belong mainly to the Hungarian Baroque era. Deep underground, a several kilometre long maze cuts through the city's hill. The basements of many buildings are connected to this tunnel system, therefore allowing visitors easy access to a seemingly never-ending system of fascinating passages. The Turkish conquerors used these subterranean passages and caves, that were created among thermal springs and waterways, and extended them for military use. During the hours of evening, Buda's streets and archways radiate a magnificent light that is a wonderful contrast to the wonderful ambience of this city during the day.

    Budapest Hungary - Travel Video.
    DVD. Vista Point. 26 Minutes. Budapest, capital of Hungary, is the pearl of the Danube and a constantly changing metropolis. Hungary was once a kingdom but then came the Turks who were followed by the Habsburgs and Maria Theresia who became `Queen of Hungary'. The historic centre of Budapest is dominated by its noble castle that towers above the banks of the Danube. A one hundred metre long cable railway that dates back to 1870 is both a practical and fascinating way to ascend the hill to the castle. Each day the area around the castle, the Fischerbastel, that has never played a military role, attracts large numbers of tourists. Margareten Island is set amid the Danube and is Budapest's vast entertainment area. It was at its most colourful during the Romantic period of the 18th and 19th centuries when it was a meeting place for poets, philosophers and artists. A small hotel was built for its creative community and it became an island of artists and dreamers. In the area of the city called Pest there is a splendid building with a mighty cupola, The Parliament, the city's main landmark and an important part of Hungary's historic past. In 1867 Buda and Pest were acknowledged by the Emperor as the seat of the Hungarian government with its own parliament. The building resembles London's Houses of Parliament. Hungary is a fusion of two different cultural regions as indicated by its architecture and lifestyle and it is very much where the order of the Occident unites with the calmness of the Orient.
