Bucharest

Bucharest is the capital city, cultural, industrial, and financial centre of Romania. It is the largest city in Romania and was first mentioned in documents as early as 1459. Since then it has gone through a variety of changes, becoming the state capital of Romania in 1862 and steadily consolidating its position as the centre of the Romanian mass media, culture and arts. Its eclectic architecture is a mix of historical, interbellum, Communist-era and modern. In the period between the two World Wars, the city's elegant architecture and the sophistication of its elite earned Bucharest the nickname of the "Little Paris of the East".

Kalocsa

Kalocsa

Kalocsa, one of the oldest towns in Hungary, in Bács-Kiskun county, is situated in a marshy but highly productive district, near the left bank of the Danube River. Historically it had greater political and economic importance than at present. It is the Episcopal see of one of the four Catholic archbishops of Hungary.
