Budapest - Óbuda


Excerpted from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Óbuda (sometimes written in English as Obuda) was a historical city in Hungary.
United with Buda and Pest in 1873 it now forms part of District III of Budapest.
The name means Old Buda in Hungarian.

The island (Óbuda Island) next to this part of the city today hosts the Sziget Festival, a huge music and cultural festival.

Its centre is Fő tér (Main Square), connected to a small square with a nice sculpture of people waiting for the rain to stop.
It is available by HÉV (Árpád híd station).

Settlements dating from the stone age have been found in Óbuda.
The Romans built Aquincum, the capital of Pannonia province here.
Hungarians arrived after 900 and it served as an important settlement of major tribal leaders, later kings.
Béla IV of Hungary built a new capital after the 1241-1242 Mongol invasion in Buda, somewhat south of Óbuda.
On January 1, 1873 it was united with Buda and Pest to form Budapest.
