After a long time of absence and after there has been one Meeting Of Styles some years ago, the capitol of Hungary now jumps back on the map representing styles and skills from the southeast of Europe. The spot is very nice so better prepare yourself!

It is the country’s principal political, cultural, commercial, industrial, and transportation centre. According to the census, in 2011 Budapest had 1.74 million inhabitants,the Budapest Metropolitan Area is home to 3.3 million people.
The first settlement on the territory of Budapest was built by Celts before 1 AD. It was later occupied by the Romans. The Roman settlement – Aquincum – became the main city of Pannonia Inferior in 106 AD. At first it was a military settlement, and gradually the city rose around it, making it the focal point of the city’s commercial life. The Romans constructed roads, amphitheaters, baths and houses with heated floors in this fortified military camp.
