Historical coat of arms

Buda (German: Ofen,Turkish Budin) is the western part of the Hungarian capital Budapest on the west bank of the Danube. The name Buda takes its name from the name of Bleda the Hun ruler, whose name is also Buda in Hungarian.[1][2][3]

Buda comprises about one-third of Budapest's complete territory and is mostly wooded and hilly. It is usually associated with a higher standard of living, although this depends on the area.[according to whom?] Notable landmarks include the Buda Castle and the Citadella.

Demographics

While Pest was mostly Hungarian in the 15th century, Buda had a German majority.[4] Germans — also clinging to their language — partly crowded out, partly assimilated the Hungarians and Serbians they have found here.[4] With the rural population moving in the capital city, in the 19th century slowly Hungarians became the majority in Buda too.
