SURPRISE POSTCARD | POSTCARD SENT FROM HUNGARY
This is a surprise postcard from Sylvie. We've swapped some postcards before, and she sent me this from her trip to Hungary as thanks. She wrote about her vacation - how she enjoyed going to the thermal baths and pools. She added that Budapest is a beautiful city, but needs a lot of restoration.
Budapest is the capital and the largest city of Hungary, and one of the largest cities in the European Union. It is the country's principal political, cultural, commercial, industrial, and transportation centre, sometimes described as the primate city of Hungary.
Budapest has only officially carried the title as a Spa City for 80 years, but its unique facilities were fully recognized by Roman legionaries over 2000 years ago.
