Thought I would put this up for interest’s sake… I will officially be living in a Dorm on the “Buda” side (left side of the Danube) and working on the “Pest” side (Right side of the Danube) of Budapest. Every day I will have to cross the Danube (thats the river that runs right through Budapest) . The “Buda” side is known to be of older style and very hilly. It also is the location of the Parliment Buildings in Hungary. “Buda” is translated to mean “Hills” and “Pest” to mean river.
