One of the youngest capital of Europe – Happy Birthday Budapest!
Unification in 1873 did not went smooth. Mayor of Pest, alongside with many of its citizens were dead agains it! Buda at that time numbered as much, as 54 000, Óbuda 16 000 and Pest about 200 000 citizens. Mór Szentkirályi, that time mayor of Pest declared: „Buda is too small, its industry is underdeveloped, and the Castle Hill and Gellért Hill will limit any further development!” Who held a brief for the unification answered: „There are still enough plains beside the hills in Buda, and its thermal springs will manifest an unvaluable treasure in the future”. The rest is history.
Budapest is one of the “youngest” European capital, though it has a history of more than 2000 years. Traces have been found of settlements dating back as far as the Old Stone Age. As Bronze Age urn sites discoveries say, people lived on both sides of the Danube, where Budapest now stands, in the second millennium BC alike. In the 6th century BC Scythians from the Black Sea region settled here, and there are signs of Celto-Illyrian tribes having been here in the 4th/3rd centuries BC. Then came the Romans in about 10 AC, Attila, the Hun in the 5th century, Avars from the 6th century, and then Árpád’s „magyar” tribes has arrived.
In the Middle Ages neither Buda, either Pest were capitals of Hungary. The arriving Hungarian tribes had a series of conflicts with (among others) with the Bulgarian Empire too, and during the first clashes in the late 9th century the Hungarians were forced to migrate to the west. They established their first royal seat in Esztergom (note, at that time Esztergom, built on a hilltop, and being naturally guarded by river Danube from one side, and Pilis hills from the other side, seemed more, than appropiate to be a capital). After the Bulgarian-Hungarian wars, Buda and Pest started their development in the 12th century, and became real royal towns in1251 and 1230 resp. In the meantime Óbuda ((literally “Old” Buda) inherited its importance from Attila, the Hun, who selected it as his residential place and seat already in the 5th century (settling down in the old Roman city located here, Aquincum). Beside Esztergom, Óbuda – boasting with curches, monasteries, royal palace, and even a university (1395) - was also used for centuries by the Hungarian kings and qeens, as residential and hunting place. Centuries passed, and the three cities – facing good and bed times – lived their own lifes.
In the history of Budapest the year 1873 stands out as a milestone, for it was then that the three separate settlements of Pest, Buda and Óbuda were unified, and Budapest officially became the capital city of Hungary. Actually Buda and Óbuda were the same bailiwick already from 19th December 1849, having all their offices in common, namely in Buda Castle. In 1850 the royal court of the Habsburg Empire also issued a decree, wich pronounced Pest to be the same lathe, as Buda and Óbuda, establishing common educational and taxation offices. But the official unification happened only on 17th November 1873, when
(after the Commitment of 1867 and birth of the Austrian-Hungarian Monarch) also the Hungarian Constitution was restituted.
Draft of the act of unification was set before the Hungarian Parliament in 1971, passed in 1972, and 17th November 1873 became the birthday of Budapest, one of the most beautiful capitals of the world.
