- Pest lies, flat and proud, as far as the eye can see. The best vantage-point to gaze upon it is from hilly Buda, and the opposite is also true; Buda is best seen from Pest. To fully appreciate Pest, climb to the top of Gellert Hill, or stare down from one of the many fine panoramic points on Castle Hill. Buda and Pest were two separate cities until as recently as 1873. They have very different characters but it's not possible to say that there is a right or a wrong side of the river; they both have their charms and surprises. Fortunately it's easy to explore both sides.
