Budapest is the capital and the largest city of Hungary, and one of the largest cities in the #EuropeanUnion . It is the country's principal political, cultural, commercial, industrial, and transportation centre sometimes described as the primate city of Hungary.
The line was opened on March 2, 1870, and has been in municipal ownership since 1920. It was destroyed in the Second World War and reopened on June 4, 1986. A feature of the line are the two pedestrian foot bridges which cross above it. These were present when the line opened, were removed in 1900 when the castle's garden was extended, and rebuilt to the original design in 1983.
