1 city in the city

2 Dear Visitors, city in the city Let me start by heartily welcoming you to Óbuda, Budapest s second largest district, the 2000-year-old city in the city. Óbuda is a special place with a special atmosphere, where past meets present and historical buildings colour the texture of high-rise apartment blocks. The Aquincum ruins, including two Roman amphitheatres and the traces of the civil settlement serve as a lasting reminder of the five hundred year long Roman era. Other popular visitor destinations include the remnants of the 14th century Clarisse Church and Monastery, the Saint Peter and Paul Church built in highly decorative Baroque style, the mansion of the noble Zichy family, the Classicist Synagogue and the national heritage site of the Óbuda Gas Factory to name just a few. Fô (Main) Square offers a genuine turn of the century milieu; this is the place where an abundance of open-air cultural events take place from spring through autumn. In the winter period a temporary ice skate ring is set up for skate-lovers. Óbuda has always been known for its openness and hospitality. The small but lively restaurants of the district became famous at the beginning of the 20th century; today the same quality of authenticity awaits their guests. Besides historic treasures, Óbuda is also rich in natural sights. Those who like to take a nature walk are invited to hike along Hármashatár Hill, Róka Hill or Mátyás Hill. For water-lovers the river Danube offers pleasurable pastime. I hope that you will find this pocket guide a useful source of information during your stay, encompassing basic information on our district s must-see sites, tourist accommodation and relevant institutions. The aim of the brochure is to help you discover what no guide book can offer: Óbuda s unique atmosphere. We wish you a pleasant and memorable stay and hope to welcome you again soon.

3 The Brief History of Óbuda Óbuda enjoys an ideal geographic location; the proximity of the River Danube and the protective ring of the Buda Hills attracted settlers from the very beginning. The area has been inhabited since prehistoric times. The everyday life of our predecessors is well illustrated by rich archeological findings, including chipped stone tools and ceramic pots. The Roman era is one of the most significant periods in Óbuda s history. Augustus Ceasar (27 BC 14 AD) expanded Roman dominions to the Danube and used the river as a natural barrier. The Emperor relied on his stepson Tiberius to quell the mutiny of the local Celts. Following Tiberius successful military actions Romans invaded Pannonia and founded the capital of Pannonia Inferior on the right bank of the river in 89 AD; Aquincum served as the administrative centre of Lower Pannonia from 106 AD until the end of the 4th century. The settlement consisted of a Roman military base and the adjacent camp, lying south of the civilian town. The palace of the procurator was erected on the island known today as Hajógyári Island. Both the civilian and the military settlement were completed by an amphitheatre. The town grew to its maximum extent at the beginning of the 3rd century; the population totalled around 10,000-12,000. A slow recession started in the second half of the 4th century. Due to the continuous attacks of Barbarian hordes a hundred years later the town was completely depopulated. Hungarian tribes arrived in the Carpathian basin in 895 AD. The Óbuda area was occupied by one of Grand Prince Árpád s fellow leaders, tribal chieftain Kurszán. The chieftain set up his headquarters in the Roman military amphitheatre, which was later taken over by Árpád. The Grand Prince was said to have been buried among the Roman ruins in 907 AD. Óbuda was a principality seat until the mid 10th century, then served as the centre for the royal court until the mid 13th century. In the Middle Ages the heart of Buda which at that time roughly equalled the later Óbuda was Fô Square, flanked by the churches dedicated to Peter and Mary, the Provost s palace and the row of prebendary houses. During the reign of the Anjou kings Óbuda became known as the Queen s City, as in 1343 Louis I the Great donated the royal palace to his mother, Elisabeth. This was a time of rapid development; a Clarisse nunnery was erected from the queen s donations, to be followed by several others across the country. Flourishing commerce attracted more and more settlers, most of them merchants, craftsmen and vine growers. The opening of the University of Óbuda in 1395 was a cultural milestone; the university founded by Sigismund of Luxembourg ( ) had an unfortunately short history and ceased its operation in After the Hungarian defeat at the Battle of Mohács in 1526, Ottoman troops entered and pillaged Óbuda; most buildings were destroyed, the inhabitants fled. The city was attacked again and burned down in After further assaults the area was captured and occupied by the Sultan s army in Border hostilities continued for a long time between Ottoman and Hungarian forces. In 1659, during the time of Ottoman domination, captain of the Komárom Fortress, István Zichy acquired the region from the Royal Chamber; for the next 106 years Óbuda belonged to the Zichy family. The Ottomans were defeated and on 2nd September 1686 Buda was liberated. The Zichys started the reconstruction and repopulation of Óbuda: many old families returned, to be joined by German and Jewish settlers. The name of Count Miklós Zichy marks a glorious era; the district developed at a great pace, the Baroque-style Zichy Mansion was built on Fô Square, the Kiscell Hill was crowned with the Trinity Monastery and this was the time when the construction of the Peter and Paul Church started. The death of the heirless count brought an end to this period, his widow gave Óbuda back to the Royal Chamber in In the first half of the 19th century Óbuda industrial production was on the rise; textile industry (traditional blue-dyeing, silk braiding and spinning), brick manufacturing and leather and alcoholic beverage production expanded. In 1835 the Óbuda Ship Factory started its operation. The second half of the 19th century 4 5 T h e B r i e f H i s t o r y o f Ó b u d a T h e B r i e f H i s t o r y o f Ó b u d a

4 was a time of uninterrupted development for the middle class. Pest, Buda and Óbuda were united in 1873 and the capital city of Budapest was born. This changed the position of Óbuda in a fundamental way; the new 3rd District became a peripheral area of the capital. At the turn of the century it was mostly known for its natural beauties; a place where the city s inhabitants spent their free time. This was the golden age of small, homely pubs and restaurants, giving the district its character for generations to come. After World War I and the revolutions industrial production developed dynamically; this was the time when the Óbuda Gas Factory started its operation. Along Bécsi Road so called City Houses were built, housing casinos, clubs and other leisure organisations. Public transportation developed rapidly, in 1933 the first trolleybus line of the capital was started in Óbuda. The construction of the Árpád Bridge started in 1939; while the Danube-spanning bridge put an end to the district s isolation, the historic city centre was unrepairably split. World War II spared Óbuda until the Christmas of The district had heavy losses both in terms of civil lives and urban structure: most residential buildings and factories were destroyed or suffered severe damages. In the post-war era industrial production increased dramatically; most citizens worked in the factories of the district. On 7th November 1950 the reconstruction of Árpád Bridge was completed (it was named Stalin Bridge at the time) and in Gábor Kássa - Majláth Street, watercolour (1949), Source: Óbuda Museum the same year Békásmegyer was joined to the district. The Hungarian Revolution of 1956 took its toll on Óbuda, armed conflicts concentrated on the vicinity of the Kiscell Mansion. Óbuda lost its small town character in the 1960 s when a mass of old houses were bulldozed, demolishing 6,500 bathroomless apartments. This marked the beginning of the capital s most comprehensive residential modernisation programme, virtually obliterating the historic town structure. The first huge residential block was erected in The Békásmegyer housing project started later in 1975 and was a considerable enterprise of its time, even in European standards. Today Óbuda-Békásmegyer is the second largest district of the capital with a population of 130, T h e B r i e f H i s t o r y o f Ó b u d a T h e B r i e f H i s t o r y o f Ó b u d a

5 Historic Walks in Óbuda 1 Town Hall (Városháza, Fô Square 3) GPS / The old one-storey Town Hall was demolished at the beginning of the 20th century. It was replaced in 1906 by the prominent building which is home to the District Mayor and the Óbuda-Békásmegyer Authority today. 1 Fô Square and historic surroundings The cobblestones and lamp posts of the neighbouring streets (Laktanya Street and Hídfô Street) and the low rise buildings built in Classicist and Eclectic style evoke the authentic milieu of the 18-19th century Óbuda. The corner house at Fô Square 4 was built in the 1780 s and shows the characteristic of the Louis Seize style. Today it houses the Zsigmond Kun Folk Art Collection. The residential building of Fô Square 5 has an Eclectic balcony; the house itself was built in Classicist style. Underneath the cobbles of Fô Square lie the Medieval prebendary quarter s remains dating back to the 11-14th century. The Provost s Palace and the ruins of the Peter and Mary Churches are also buried in the ground. Óbuda s first church was dedicated to Saint Peter and built under the reign of King Peter Orseolo in the 11th century. The church was severely damaged during the Tartar raids, its stone material was later re-used by locals. The church devoted to Mary was raised on the ruins of the Saint Peter Church in the mid 14th century. The building was an architectural treasure of Óbuda at the time: it boasted of a 70 meter wide and 20 meter long nave with rich internal decorations including statues and murals. The church was destroyed at the time of the Ottoman invasion, some of its stones can be seen in local Baroque buildings. The remains of the church s buttresses are exhibited in the Cellar Gallery of the Zichy Mansion (Fô Square 1). 2 Imre Varga: Statue of the Waiting GPS / A small group of young women are holding umbrellas regardless of the weather; they can be found at the north-western end of Fô Square, near Laktanya Street.

The old royal castle had an orderly square plan to counterbalance its vulnerable flatland position it was surrounded by double walls and a trench. After the Tartar invasion of 1241 Béla IV preferred the more easily defendable fortresses, thus the importance of the Óbuda castle diminished.

Fô Square and Szentlélek Square hosts colourful programmes, focusing on a different topic every year. Floralia (May) Floralia was an ancient Roman flower festival, a celebration of renewal, which used to be celebrated at the time of blossoming; later it was prolonged for a whole week and was held between 28th April and 3rd May. The biggest Roman festival has been revived by the Aquincum Museum: for a weekend every year the ancient settlement comes to life with a crowd of soldiers, gladiators, craftsmen, actors and pantomime artists entertaining the guests. Óbuda Fair (End of June) The Fair is a traditional German event, taking place every year on Fô Square and Szentlélek Square. The two day programme includes performances of children from the German minority s C U L T U R A L I N S T I T U T I O N S C U L T U R A L I N S T I T U T I O N S

Sziget Festival (August) Május 9 Park, Hajógyári Island The first Sziget Festival was organised in 1992, and since then no August can go by without one. The Sziget has become more than a tradition; it is one of the leading events of European music festivals. A dozen stages operate at the same time to make sure that all age groups find the music to their taste. The main focus is on music but all other genres of culture are represented on Hajógyári Island. Advent (December) During the Advent period several concerts, children s events and fairs are organised. Street vendors sell arts and crafts on Fô Square, while the irresistible aroma of kürtôs kalács (chimney cake or stove cake), kenyérlángos (pizza bread) and mulled wine fills the December air. Skate-lovers are welcome to visit the temporary ice ring located on the nicely lit Fô Square; the ring is available from December to February. Saturnalia (December) The ancient Latin feast evokes the memory of the golden age of Saturn. Over the years the originally one-day commemoration on 17th December grew into a week-long festival. The revival of Roman traditions is organised by the Aquincum Museum, spanning the Advent period. Leisure Activities Natural Sights Few cities can boast of a larger variety of interesting and colourful natural sites than Óbuda. The northern embankment of Óbuda Island has been left in its natural form and encompasses one of the last areas of original vegetation with undisturbed forests and grasslands, offering temporary shelter for migrating birds and breeding place for several species of songbirds. When the weather is clear, it is worth to stroll along the paths of Hármashatár Hill and look down from the clearings; the hilltop offers a picturesque view of the whole city. The former Róka Hill quarry was used from the 1st century for mining limestone. Today the area is under protection, as it displays special geological formations as well as the characteristic flora and fauna of the rocky surroundings. The former Mátyás Hill quarries display the traces of the one-time sea habitat, including fossils of clams and sea urchins. Thermal water has created complex cave-systems in the soft limestone of the Buda Hills, many of which are still being explored. The Mátyáshegy Cave is connected with the nearby Pálvölgy Cave. According to our present knowledge the joint passageway of the two caves totals 19 kilometres, making it the longest cave of the Dunántúl region. Sections of the Mátyáshegy Cave are open to the public; guided visits are made in special protective clothing and only visitors in good physical condition are allowed. In Pálvölgyi Cave regular tours are organised, with no protective clothing needed the shortest one is 25 minutes, the longer one 60 minutes. The tour guides are experts from the Danube-Ipoly National Park (1025 Budapest, Szépvölgyi Road 162.; ; C U L T U R A L I N S T I T U T I O N S L e i s u r e A c t i v i t i e s

15 RÓMAI-PART: VISITING THE DANUBE BANK The section of the river bank known as Római-part has unique potentials: there might be no other city in Europe where such a long waterfront is given over to leisure activities like walking, cycling or simply spending time outdoors. The 3 kilometre long bank and the riverside bicycle road attracts cyclists as well as families, young mothers with their children, dog owners and lovers of gastronomy and water sports. In the evening young people come to the Római for a night out. The riverside pubs are just as popular as the lángos vendors or other street food stalls. Live music played in the evenings evoke the atmosphere of the 60 s and 70 s. The river section north of the city has been used for water sports since the turn of the last century. The boat houses most of which are listed national monuments were built in the 1920 s and 30 s. Active leisure activities include sightseeing on water, and enjoying the adventure of rowing in a faithful remake of the Roman courier galleys.
