BUDAPEST – Well worth a Journey!

Budapest accommodates two UNESCO-World heritage centres. It is the only major city in the world where you find nearly 100 Thermal Springs and 12 Health Spas, where you find ruins dating back to roman times, still functioning Turkish Baths, where Gothic and Baroque architecture stands side by side in harmony with modern architecture.

In 2002 UNESCO declared the Castle quarter, the bank of the Danube, Andrassy Street and historic surroundings and buildings which are under order of preservation a world culture centre.  The rows of houses flanking the bank of the Danube, Bridges, the House of Parliament, the Basilica and the Hungarian Academy of Science and Gresham Palace   live happily next to each other.

The most popular and most visited tourist attractions are the Budaer Castle, the Opera House and the great Market Hall.  The Kings Palace in the Castle is one of the most important  centres of culture and the flagship of the country,  a witness to battles and wars since the 13th century.  The buildings in parts are still of middle age origin, it houses the History Museum of Budapest, the Szechenyi-Library, the Hungarian National Gallery, and Ludwig Museum.

The surrounding area of Budapest also offers places of interest, for example the Chateau Godollo (Chateau of  Empress Sissi – Empress of Austro-Hungary), the National Park Hortogab (Puszta) and the Artists town Eszergom on the bend of the Danube.

But you do not only find places of interest and culture.  For the Annual Conference we anticipate to invite Hungarian machine tool dealers to the Merchants Market (Thursday).   To this effect we would welcome addresses and contacts from our colleagues  from the Association.   Your input would be appreciated.
