Beauty and Sorrow

When two towns became one city, the Hungarian capital of Budapest was born. With the beauty of The Danube, its neo-Renaissance architecture, and hot spring spas, the old European city has plenty to offer the gay traveller. The local eye-candy and racy sex-show bars are just the cherry on the kremes.
Feature by Riley-McFarlane Photography.

SETTLED BY THE CELTS at the beginning of the previous millennium, the capital of Hungary has a rich and tumultuous history. A home to citizens of the Roman Empire, the Otterman Empire and the Russian Empire, it has also been ruled by the Habsburgs, invaded by the Monguls, the Nazis and the Soviets. Its name originates from 1873 when the cities of Óbuda and Buda, on the west bank of the Danube river unified with the city of Pest directly opposite on the east bank. It has become one of the largest cities in the European Union and a major tourist destination with something to do morning, afternoon and night.
