Did you know? The most kept secret from visitors is the BUDA side of the Danube - must see-
History of Budapest “the Pearl of the Danube”
Budapest – is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Gellért Hill on the bank of the Danube River, as it flows majestically through the centre of the modern city, offered a natural protection against invasion with the combination of the relative ease of crossing the river, provided an ideal place to build a town. The Eravisci, a tribe of highly cultured Celts, had already settled at Gellért Hill in the third and fourth centuries B.C. Later, the Romans built a settlement at today’s Óbuda. They called it Aquincum (City of water) and it was the capital of Pannonia, an important station along the lines 'til Kostantinapoly (today's Istanbul), which ran alongside the Danube.
its zenith was reached under King Matyas (ruled 1458-1490). Pest also prospered at this time, and Matyas raised it to equal rank with Buda. Between the two towns, records show that Margit Island was home to a castle built by the crusaders and also several monasteries. Following the Turkish (Ottoman Empire) invasion and Hungarian defeat at the Battle of Mohács (1526), the Turks sacked and burned Buda. The city suffered dreadfully by the century-and-a-half Turkish occupation. The Ottomans however, built baths fed by the abundant hot springs. Their legacy, some of them are still operating today – the most visible monuments of that period.
Buda was freed from Turkish yoke on September 2nd, 1686, and so began the Hapsburg period.
The next daring undertaking was the building of the first permanent bridge across the Danube – the Chain Bridge / Shechenyi Lanchid today still the most recognizable symbol of the city – and the logical conclusion of that was the legislative unification in 1873 of Buda, Pest and Óbuda into one city – Budapest.
There was an even greater motivation at the end of the nineteenth century as Hungary celebrated the millenary anniversary of the Magyars establishing their home in the Carpathian basin.
Budapest possesses a rich and fascinating history as well as a vibrant cultural heritage. Recognizing the unique value of its traditions it has managed to maintain its magic and charm, and is rightly known as the Pearl of the Danube. It has also been called the City of Spas, as there are over a dozen thermal bath complexes served by over a hundred natural thermal springs. The Hungarian gastronomy and wines are first rate and have been enjoyed by millions of visitors throughout the centuries.
