Home to not one but two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Budapest is the only capital in the world boasting nearly 100 thermal wells and 12 spas. Here, tourists flock to admire Roman ruins and Turkish baths (still in use today), as well as Buda Castle, the neo-gothic Parliament building, Heroes' Square, St. Stephen's Basilica (whose dome can be seen from all points in the city), the Matthias Coronation Church, and Fishermen's Bastion. Spanning both banks of the Danube, Budapest is connected by eight splendid bridges, some of which are landmarks in and of themselves, such as the Chain Bridge (the oldest and most beautiful), the A-shaped Megyeri Bridge, and the strikingly elegant, white Elisabeth Bridge.

Since early childhood, Andras has been surrounded by people who worked in tourism. His mother was a congress organizer and his grandmother a tourist guide and he often accompanied them to events.
