The Hungarian city of Budapest in earlier times was split into two cities of Buda and Pest. The Danube River separated both cities, with Buda located on the west bank of the river and Pest on its east bank. The Danube River, which used to separate both cities, lately incorporated them and amalgamated them into the second biggest city in Europe after Berlin.
