Budapest - Hungary

I just have a few cards from Hungary, most of them from Budapest and from what i can see so far, Budapest is a beautiful city.
This 1st card sent by "keadamna" shows a Budapest panorama with Danube and Gellért-mountain.

"Budapest is the capital city of Hungary and the country's principal political, cultural, commercial, industrial and transportation centre. Budapest became a single city occupying both banks of the river Danube with the amalgamation on 17 November 1873 of right-bank (west) Buda and Óbuda together with Pest on the left (east) bank." - in wikipedia.

This is a Buda Castle card sent by Edina "Apoletta". "Buda Castle is the historical castle of the Hungarian kings in Budapest. In the past, it was also called Royal Palace and Royal Castle.
Buda Castle was built on the southern tip of Castle Hill, next to the old Castle District, which is famous about its medieval, Baroque and 19th century houses and public buildings. It is linked to Adam Clark Square and the Széchenyi Chain Bridge by the Castle Hill Funicular.
Buda Castle is part of the Budapest World Heritage Site, declared in 1987." -
