The Siege of Budapest refers to the Soviet Union's takeover of the Hungarian capital city of Budapest towards the end of World War II in Europe. Part of the broader Budapest Offensive, the siege began when Budapest, defended by Hungarian and German SS troops, was first encircled on 29 December 1944 by the Red Army and the Romanian Army.
