Environmental zone of Budapest Kelet–Pest – Hungary
The environmental zone of Budapest Kelet–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.
The unified municipality of Budapest was created in 1873 by the merging of the previously independent towns of Buda (Oven), Óbuda (Old Oven), both west of the Danube, and Pest, east of the Danube. Today Budapest is the second largest city on the Danube, before the cities of Belgrade and Vienna.
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 Kelet–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.
