30 Wonderful Color Photographs That Capture Everyday Life in Budapest, Hungary in the 1970s

Budapest is the capital and most populous city of Hungary and one of the largest cities in the European Union. It is both a city and county, and forms the centre of the Budapest Metropolitan Area, which has an area of 7,626 square kilometres (2,944 square miles) and a population of 3.3 million, comprising 33 percent of the population of Hungary.

"Budapest" is the combination of the city names Buda and Pest, which were (together with Óbuda) united into a single city in 1873. One of the first documented occurrences of the combined name "Buda-Pest" was in 1831 in the book "Világ" ("World" / "Light"), written by Count István Széchenyi.

Budapest is cited as one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. These wonderful photos were taken by photographer named Louise when he traveled by train to Budapest with friends in 1975.
