It would be if:

1) 70-80% of it didnt get destroyed in WW2.
2) If the goverment actually started reparing some of the bullet holes, the graffity on walls, and some other things

3) If the goverment started renweing it.

Budapest IS one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

No, The bullet holes give history and character, to remind us what we've been through.

The hideous graffiti must go, and shame on someone who deliberately makes their city dirty like that along with people who litter.

The government has been renewing Hungary, 2 years ago Koszeg and Sopron were under tarps being beautified.

Budapest is not Hungary, there are so many other beautiful towns and cities,

Pecs, Veszprem, Eger, Nyiregyhaza, Opusztaszer, my favorite Gyula. Just to name a few....

The biggest problem with Budapest is much of their population, and their mentality.

Budapest IS beautiful but the people are surly It does not cost any money to smile and be pleasant,
especially to visitors who bring in the euros, what Hungary badly needs now!!

Women like men who don't smile.

You must feel strange in USA then :)

I wouldn't say Hungarians don't smile because they are Hungarians but rather generally speaking, people in Europe living in big cities don't smile too much (e.g. have you been in Paris ?- at least in BP passengers boarding the metro/bus wait for the ones getting out).

I live in Canada but go back often to visit family. The last 10 years has diminished Budapests beauty. It isn't as clean or as cheap as it once was. It's gorgeous at night because you can't see the graffiti and trash as much. It's a must see none the less but I prefer the other cities in the country such as Eger or Pecs

I've been pick-pocketed in Budapest, but there are pick-pocketers in every country of the world, every city, it happens everyday. EVERYWHERE!!!
NOT Just in Budapest.

It is still and always will be one of the most beautiful cities in the world!
