Factories stood on the banks of the Danube in Pest, next to the Parliament building under construction.

The image of Budapest today is defined by a prolific period, the architecture of dualism. The most famous buildings of the capital, such as the Fisherman's Bastion, the Opera House, the Parliament and Saint Stephen's Basilica, were built in the second half of the 19th century. This period is characterized by a high degree of stylistic pluralism. Join PestBuda on a walk through the most stunning buildings in Budapest.
