Have you ever thought about what Budapest truly means to you? Why you love Budapest? Which words come to your mind when thinking about Budapest? According to, the Budapest City Image Non Profit Kft made a creative video, in which famous Hungarian people describe Budapest with one word.

The company aims to show the real face of Budapest to locals so that they feel like they belong here and have every right to be proud. They play a connecting role between the capital city and its dwellers by visualising innovative developments, ideas and exciting, colourful projects.

Listed below are some of the words that come to Hungarians’ minds about Budapest:

  • Gianni Annoni, Italian born chef and television presenter: Clean (Tiszta)
  • Zséda, singer: With You (Veled)
  • Magdi Rúzsa, singer: It Accepts You (Befogad)
