The history of Budapest is fascinating. There was once a city on a hill named Buda that was the governing seat of the region. Down the hill and across the Danube was a town named Pest that embodied local language, literature, and theater. In 1873 the cities found it advantageous to unify into one city, Budapest, brought about by the most recognizable feature of the city, the Chain Bridge.
