Óbuda

From Wikivoyage
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Óbuda (lit. Old Buda) is in Budapest. This article describes the southern part of District III (Óbuda–Békásmegyer).

Understand[edit]

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 1241-42 Mongol invasion in Buda, somewhat south of Óbuda. Óbuda was merged with Buda and Pest on 17 November 1873.

The Main Square (Fő tér) and the surrounding streets (Laktanya utca, Hídfő utca lit. Barrack Street, Bridgehead Street) with its cube stones, lampposts, remaining neo-classical and eclectic-storied houses faithfully evoke the 18th and 19th century atmosphere of Óbuda. Under cobblestones of the main square is the medieval Chapter district, from 11-14th centuries. The former provost's palace, and Peter and Mary Church stood here, remnants are no longer visible.
