They were Buda or Obuda on the Western bank of Danube and Pest on the Eastern bank. On 17th November 1873 they were amalgamated to form Budapest. Thr river Danube runs through Budapest..( Vienna also lies on the banks of the Danube. Remember the famous waltz Blue Danube? Strauss wrote it seeing it flow through Vienna or Wien).
