What we know as modern-day Budapest is a product of a menage a trois. In 1873 the three towns of Buda, Pest, and Obuda were connected by the construction of the chain bridge. However, the personalities of each area are very distinct and although they are now part of the same city, they seem to be worlds apart. Buda is the posh, decadent side, where the art is in galleries and the buildings are neo-gothically ornate. Pest, on the other hand, is the rebellious, real Hungary, where the bars are in ruins and the art is sprayed on the walls.
