Thanks to a number of historical events and the evolution of time, the face of Budapest
has changed somewhat throughout the years. With two World Wars, the Communist regime, a number of uprisings and laws restricting the building of skyscrapers
, multiple factors have affected how the cityscape appears today. Take a look at Budapest
as it was years ago, and see if you recognise any of the places shown in the photos.
