the short explanation is that "budapest" is really a city made up of two different cities, originally, "buda" and "pest", separated by the danube river. i believe there was an old jewish community in "obuda", but most of the modern development was in "pest", and people have made the distinction between the two.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
the locals usually refer to "pest", except when speaking to foreigners, etc.
