Budapest Hungary Budapest, Hungary

 

Budapest is a capital city of Hungary and its most powerful property, being a political, commercial, industrial, transportation, and cultural centre. Conveniently located on oh banks of the Danube River, the city counts population of about 1 800 000 people.

The Roman town Acquincum, which was founded in about AD 89, is the site where contemporary city of Budapest is set. It was a Celtic settlement close to Obuda (the left bank of the Danube River).

In 900 this very area was occupied by the Magyars of Central Asia, who later founded Hungary. And in 1361 already Buda (the right bank of the Danube River) became the capital of Hungary.

The time passed in a slow and burdensome procession and the city became a really potent trading and commercial centre. This rapid development, thought, was interrupted by the conquest of almost all Hungary by the Ottoman Empire.

Buda, the right bank of the River Danube, remained the seat of a Turkish pasha, as well as an administrative centre of the whole vilayet. Pest, the left bank of the River Danube, became a bustling commercial inn during the 18th-19th centuries. By the beginning of the 18th century the number of Pest's population was bigger even of those of Buda and Obuda taken together.

So three cities, Buda (located on the right bank of the river) and Pest with Obuda (occupying the left bank of the Danube River) were growing and developing under the single administration, in the person of the Hungarian Government, and of Austro-Hungarian from 1867, when it was established.

The 20th century is a time of growing and flourishing industry within the city boundaries; while the number of the population was noticed to increasing in its quantity in the suburbs of Budapest.

World War I became one of the harsh pages of city's history, marking a great number of human losses and territory and property damages. Recovering from tragic events by 1930 the population of the city was one million already and some 400 000 of inhabitants lodged in the suburbs of the city.

World War II made Hungary and its cities suffered a lot from the British and Americans, devastating and destroying its territories. And again the city has managed to pick up from such demolitions and shambles. From the year 1950 the city's expansion was clear-cut: new districts appeared, including Greater Budapest.

Nowadays the city of Budapest and all its districts are highly-developed centres with rapidly upcoming economy. So, after the unification of three cites, Buda, Obuda, and Pest, in 1873, Budapest compromises 23 districts in itself. Six districts are in Buda, 16 - in Pest, and one - on Csepel Island between them.
