Jul-07-05  Knight13: Cool. Budapest wins every game!
Jul-08-05  korger: <>, the modern Budapest did not exist until 1873, when it was born from the union of three former cities, called Pest, Buda and Óbuda, all situated by the banks of the river Danube. In the 1840's it was the chess circle of Pest that conducted these correspondence games with Paris, so the page title should be more properly read as the "City of Pest."

Oh God. I just realized how stupid this sounds in English. Nevertheless, this is the correct name; however, Hungarians pronounce it something like "Pesht." In any case, I don't insist on that "City of Pest" any more. Just wanted to let you know...

Sep-15-08  Katu: The city was only theoretically split before 1873. Before that it was called "Pest-Buda". In culture, economy, politics etc. it was one city long ago. Only the administration of the Monarchy would say "it's two cities".

So "The city of Pest-Buda" is a more correct name I think.

May-02-09  Dredge Rivers: Watch out for that Hungarian Navy!
Dec-11-09  Xeroxx: < Cool. Budapest wins every game! >

except for the drawn game.

Feb-20-15  Oliveira: <Katu> <korger> Interesting information.
Feb-20-15  Oliveira: <Katu> <korger> The Chess Player Chronicle confirms it was called the City of Pesht (not that I mind that much, though).
