The first settlement on the territory of Budapest is accounted to Celtic tribes. During the first century AD, the Roman fortification on the territory of present-day Óbuda (now part of Budapest) gradually developed into the town of Aquincum which became the capital city of the province of Lower Pannonia in AD 106. In the following centuries Buda emerged as the most important royal seat. In 1241/42 the Mongol Empire conquered the territory along with large parts of Europe. Since then, much time has passed, and we fast forward to modern Budapest; vibrant, exciting and friendly to the traveller. It also helps to be easy on the wallet (compared to Western Europe)
In 1987 Budapest was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List for architectural and cultural significance of the Danube, the Buda Castle Quarter and Andrassy Avenue.
