Environmental zone of Budapest Közép–Pest – Hungary

[Bitte in "Englisch" übersetzen:] Die Umweltzone Budapest Közép–Pest

The environmental zone of Budapest Közép–Pest is a permanent area of the city on the left of the Danube and located in the eastern part of the city.
Budapest is the capital of Hungary and at the same time the largest city of the country. With over 1.8 million inhabitants and an area of 525.13 km², Budapest is the tenth largest city in the European Union.

In December 1987, Budapest was declared by UNESCO a World Heritage Site, with a view of the Danube banks and the Buda Castle Quarter. The Buda Castle Quarter is one of the most romantic parts of the city. It is an original quarter of the city with a large collection of important monuments and therefore unique in the country.

Administratively, Budapest is divided into 23 districts and 17 environmental zones. 15 of the 17 environmental zones each cover part of the urban area; two environmental zones cover the entire urban area. These are the zones of Budapest City (winter) and Budapest (temporary).

The environmental zone of Budapest Közép–Pest is one of 15 permanently established zones of the city, whose rules essentially require a weight and an emission limit (EURO emission standard) of the vehicles.
