The importance of 'Budapest' to Hungary is difficult to overestimate. More than two million people live in the capital and everything converges here - roads and rail lines; air travel; industry, commerce and culture; opportunities, wealth and power. In short, 'Budapest' is a city worthy of comparison with other great European capitals. Surveying Budapest from the embankments or the bastions of Várhegy, it's easy to see why the city was dubbed the 'Pearl of the Danube'. Its grand buildings and sweeping bridges look magnificent, especially when floodlit or illuminated by the barrage of fireworks that explode above the Danube every August 20, St Stephen's Day. The eclectic inner-city and radial boulevards combine brash commercialism with a fin-de-siècle sophistication, while a distinctively Magyar character is highlighted by the sounds and appearance of the Hungarian language at every turn. Since the Communist system expired, Budapest has experienced a new surge of dynamism. Luxury hotels and malls, restaurants, bars and clubs have all proliferated - as have crime and social inequalities.
