Budapest - Újpest
Újpest is district IV (Hungarian: IV. kerület) of Budapest, Hungary.
The football club Újpest FC is named after the area, since they were formed in the district in 1885, and have played there since.
The name Újpest means New Pest, because the city was formed on the border of the city of Pest in 1840.
Újpest was a village for 6 decades until 1907 when it became a city.
In 1950 the town was unified with Budapest to form Greater Budapest.
Since 1950 Újpest is the 4th district of Budapest.
