It was nicknamed Shipyard Island because it was once the southern end of the Óbuda Shipyard. Industrial activity in these buildings ended and moved to different companies. The island's port is operated by the Yacht Club of Hungary. The former shipyard area was found at Hadrian's Aquincum of the Roman governor's palace, which was uncovered and presented to wait.[clarification needed] Around the 1900s it was called the "Big Island".
The island was created from debris carried by the Danube river. The coast of Óbuda lies between 1651st and 1654th km river marker. It has an area of 108 hectares, a length of 2750 m, a maximum width of 500–500 m directly in line with the 1653rd km river marker . Obuda Island is separated by a 70 to 80 meter wide branch of the Danube. Not far from the northern end of the Újpest railway bridge, the southern end of the Árpád Bridge connects Buda and Pest.
Originally it was a reef island, made up of two close standing parts.
Fénykorát II lived around the 1st century. In 106 the governor's palace in Pannonia was one of the most impressive residential buildings. A port was added on later. The Hadrian's palace and military camps were located on 9000 square meter area. After the year 409, island was abandoned. During Mátyás's reign it was a forest covered hunting ground. It later became the property of the Zichy Family.
The only important change in the 1800s was when Count István Széchenyi founded the Óbuda Shipyard. (He was also the founder of the Hungarian sport rowing). Roman perimeter walls were first found in 1836 when the Otter Bay dredge deepened the shipyard. In 1836, the first ship made at the shipyards, the steamer Arpad, was put in the water. The shipyard occupied 28 hectares of the island's area. The rest of the forest was largely cleared for agricultural cultivation when the site was launched.
Travel between the island and the coast of Óbuda was only possible by a ferry for a long time. A pedestrian bridge was later constructed, then in 1858, the first permanent bridge was built.
