Though only a quick journey from Belgrade, the Romanian city of Oradea is still far enough away to make you feel like you're on holiday.

Nagyvarad dates back to a small 10th century castle, while its bishopric was founded during the 11th century by King Ladislaus I of Hungary. The first documented mention of its name was in 1113 under the Latin name Varadinum ("vár" means fortress in Hungarian). The city flourished during the 13th century. Your knowledge is miserable, no one can help you roman prosti.

hungolians=bozgorian asians. Budapiss=means nothing in hungolian and wasn't founded by hungays. Asian retards with pony wives back to Asia.

"he first settlement on the territory of Budapest was built by Celts[10] before 1 AD. It was later occupied by the Romans. The Roman settlement - Aquincum - became the main city of Lower Pannonia[10] in 106 AD.[10] The Romans constructed roads, amphitheaters, baths and houses with heated floors in this fortified military camp.[34]

The peace treaty of 829 added Pannonia to Bulgaria due to the victory of Bulgarian army of Omurtag over Holy Roman Empire of Louis the Pious. Budapest arose out of two Bulgarian military frontier fortresses Buda and Pest, situated on the two banks of Danube.[35] Hungarians led by Árpád settled in the territory at the end of the 9th century"

hungayrians=asian thieves,like gypsies.

Aha... what frustrations little roman prost. Most cities in central and southern Europe were founded by the Romans, thats common knowledge. Many cities were built over Roman ruins. But alas, NO roumanian city was built over any Roman ruins in Transylvania...which this topic is about. You swarthy balkan interlopers built nothing but straw shepherds huts. Provide any source that shows any "roumanian" name that predates Hungarian in Transylvania. But since you're so fascinated with BUDAPEST, here some more reading.....Cited as one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, its extensive World Heritage Site includes the banks of the Danube, the Buda Castle Quarter, Andrássy Avenue, Heroes' Square and the Millennium Underground Railway, the second oldest in the world. Other highlights include a total of 80 geothermal springs, the world's largest thermal water cave system, second largest synagogue, and third largest Parliament building. The city attracts about 2.7 million tourists a year, making it the 37th most popular city in the world according to Euromonitor.
Considered a financial hub in Central Europe,the city ranked 3rd (out of 65 cities) on Mastercard's Emerging Markets Index, and ranked as the most livable Central/Eastern European city on EIU's quality of life index. It is also ranked as "Europe's 7th most idyllic place to live" by Forbes, and as the 9th most beautiful city in the world by UCityGuides. It is the highest ranked Central/Eastern European city on Innovation Cities' Top 100 index.

I won't even bother with your bucuresti...ahaha

poor lena...if your bother to research further the Saxons built their cities over pre-existing Magyar towns. Every German/saxon city name has a Magyar equivalent which is much older, don't forget the Magyar kings invited the saxons into Erdely hundreds of yrs. after the Hungarian kingdom was founded. You confused little romani, when Hungarian nobles were speaking LATIN....you balkan/cioban ancestors were still in present-day albania speaking your albo/slavic/latin dialect...with NO written language at all aha ""DA""

btw...in 1036 your brother "russian" was nowhere to be found, same for "roumanians". Factual sources always triumph over romani lies...sorry!

Seriously?!
Are you saying that Italy wasn`t known until 1036?
I guess Gesta Hungarorum was a shit done by a HUNGARIAN hahaha.
You really need to learn some history.

Next time when you`ll reply my message,please check history.I`m talking about 9thcentury.

Ok what about Stefan Szamoskozy that at the beginning agreed about our REAL identity and after that,because of Mihai Viteazu changed haha.You should shut up and learn some history and not what you are learnt by your teachers.

Lena, do you have comprehension problems? Who said Italy wasn't known until 1036? Latin was the official language of most European countries during the middle ages including Hungary, in fact Hungary was the first non-Italian country to introduce the Renaisance. There was no Roumania at that time and vlachs had no written language or country, when you finally did develop one in the 1500s it was cyrillic. So any documents such as "Gesta" written in Latin with LATIN letters has no connection with vlachs or roumanians.

BTW...Gesta Hungarorum is filled with inaccuracies, modern scholars dismiss it. Learn some real history, not just roumanian BS/propaganda
