Budapest is such a beautiful city with one side of the Danube River being called Buda and the other side called Pest. My first trip to Europe was to this city in1982 when it was under communist rule, which ended in 1989. It was considered by some to be the "Paris" of the communist world. Here are a few photos from Budapest which is still as beautiful. On the way home, we stopped and made photos in another historic city, Prague.
