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 an important station along the limes, which ran alongside the Danube.

The advantages of staying here were equally obvious at the time of the Magyars’ settlement. The Magyars (Ancient name of Hungarians) built a centre on both sides of the River. Interestingly, both parts came collectively to be known as Pest. The Royal Charter dating from 1232 appears to confirm it. The name Buda came somewhat later, during the reign of King Béla IV. when Hungary was invaded with tragic results for the kingdom by the Mongols (1241-1242).
King Béla commissioned new castles and fortresses to rebuild his kingdom. He provided a good example, for he built the first Royal Palace in Buda on what become known as the Castle Hill. Buda became the royal seat around the turn of the fifteenth century under the rule of Zsigmond (also elected Holy Roman Emperor), and the Royal Palace grew ever larger until 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. Outside the capital markets were held in many places and social development blossomed. A printing press was established at Buda by 1724 and in 1777 Empress Maria Theresa had the country’s only scientific university moved from Northern Hungary, Nagyszombat (today Trnava in Slovakia), bringing with it an influx of professors and open-minded students. Emperor Joseph II later moved it again from Buda to Pest, which promoted growth in Hungarian-language literature and the theatre, in contrast to the Hapsburg policy of German as the only official language. The Hungarian Academy of Sciences, the Kisfaludy Társaság (association), and the National Theatre together played a pivotal role in the social development of the city. This was also the age when newspapers began to be published, among them the groundbreaking Pesti Hírlap founded by Lajos Kossuth.

The next daring undertaking was the building of the first permanent bridge across the Danube – the Chain Bridge, 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. Council of Public Works was formed; whose direction determined both the future shape and the enduring beauty of the city. The great avenues were laid down – most notably Andrássy Boulevard and the körútak or ring roads – and the transformation of Budapest into a modern world-class city took on a new meaning. 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 in 895/6 AD. The first underground railway was built on the continent, the streets were paved, streetlights were introduced, the waterworks at Káposztásmegyer was constructed (it is still in operation today), and a public sewerage system was developed. The first street trams began service.

The political Compromise between Hungary and the Hapsburgs in 1867 led to the beginning of the industrialization of Budapest. Agricultural industries, milling and food industries all moved into the capital, and engineering industries grew. The railway system was built, and as with the major roads, made Budapest as the hub. The city did not suffer particularly in the First World War, so after a brief period of conflict, the process of development resumed. As the city continued to grow, neighboring suburbs were absorbed into four new administrative districts. The Second World War, however, had a catastrophic effect. Apart from the horrifying cost in terms of human casualties, the architectural splendor of the city was brought to ruin. The retreating German forces while the Soviets were bombarding everything from the East blew up every one of the bridges over the Danube River. By 1950 as more suburbs were absorbed; the city comprised of 22 districts (more recently this increased to 23, as boundaries have been redrawn). The city’s buildings and transport network suffered again in the 1956 Freedom Fight against communist oppression, but once again the industrious population tried to restore the damage. Large-scale construction of low-cost flats (whole city blocks and neighborhoods) took place in the 1960’s, followed by construction of two new underground lines. The Lágymányosi Bridge, the new National Theatre and the National Concert Hall have all appeared since the fall of Socialist era. There are further developments, current constructions or planned projects, including the fourth Metro line.

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.

Reviews for Edith's Charming B&B near Historic Buda Castle
Fantastic Stay Marvany utca 31./3./1., Budapest, Budapest (186385) We had a wonderful stay at this bed and breakfast this Summer. Laszlo, our host, could not have been any nicer. With his vast knowledge of Hugarian history, we hired him as a tour guide one day, which was fabulous. We have a large family and the place suited us nicely. It's located on the Buda side, but is within walking distance of many places, and very close to a bus stop. We spent over a month traveling throughout Europe, and I must say this was one of our favorite stops. Recommended for: Girls Getaway, Tourists without a Car, Sightseeing, Families with Teenagers, Families with Young Children

Dear Ms.Tina, it is such a good filling to hear back from our guests the satisfaction of our services plus a positive compliment. We appreciate your effort to tell others how comfortable and convenient is to stay on the prestigious Buda side vs Pest. Best regards, Edith and Laszlo

This place was the highlight of our European vacation. Not only was the host knowledgable and gracious, but the location was perfect - as it was right on the bus line and was NOT a noisy neighborhood (on the Buda side - so quieter than the Pest side). We hired the host for a day to act as our city guide, which was a fabulous experience for our large family. The place was clean and had air conditioning. We all would love to go back again, and will definitely recommend this place to others.

My family and I visited Budapest in February and stayed at Edith's Place in Budapest. Our accommodation was very comfortable with large queen and king sized beds which our kids enjoyed tremendously. The apartment was furnished in a very exquisite style and we enjoyed its cleanliness. The spacious bathrooms were another positive addition. Our breakfast was delightful Hungarian and Continental mix with the owner's very special cappuccino! We truly appreciated our location since everything was conveniently near by. The weather was cold and snowy and Budapest did not offer as much as we expected, but as I understand we just missed some of the Carneval festivities. I would highly recommend this service to all travelers, specially with kids! Thanks Edith!
