The bridge at Pesth

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

Pesth, also known as Pest, and Pesta is the eastern, mostly flat part of Budapest, comprising about two thirds of Budapest’s territory. In 1838 it was flooded by the Danube. In 1849 the first suspension bridge, the Széchenyi Chain Bridge, was constructed across the Danube connecting Pest with Buda. Consequently, in 1873, the two cities were unified with óbuda to become Budapest.
