I didn’t know there were 2 sides. Buda came thousands of years before Pest. Buda has History, Pest is Fashionable. While Buda was Roman, with Prestige and violence abound, Pest was Agrarian, still growing up. It is a separation of Young and Old, assigned existence on their respective sides of the Danube. I was told the older, more refined part of town was superior. I disagreed. The Young, wild side captured my heart by a mile. That wasn’t the first time. I doubt it’s the last.
