Budapest turns 150
The history of Budapest is the history of three cities: Óbuda also known as “old Buda”, Buda, the high city found on the left side of the Danube River, and Pest, found on the right side. These three were officially unified into one single city on 17 November 1873, making it Budapest’s 150th anniversary in 2023. For the occasion, more than a hundred programs are being planned starting from early 2023 up until late 2024.
