Budapest (I mean Buda & Pest) in 1617

As a young ufonaut I used to patrol the city of Budapest for a long time, so let me give you a hint of the conditions that prevailed when I first arrived there in 1617. Actually, it was two towns then: Buda and Pest, and Braun and Hogenberg captured them well in their Civitates Orbis Terrarum (click to enlarge).
