### Placing pgf figures side by side with independent captions

Hello, I am trying to place two figures from .pgf file input side-by-side. I want them to have independent captions (so no subfigures). I have tried using the minipage way as follows:

1. \documentclass{article}
2. \usepackage{pgf}
3.
4. \begin{document}
5.
6. Some words..
7. \begin{figure}
8. \begin{minipage}[t]{0.5\linewidth}
9. \centering
10. \input{figure1.pgf}
11. \label{Figure1}
12. \caption{This is caption for Figure 1.}
13. \end{minipage}
14. \end{figure}
15. \begin{figure}
16. \begin{minipage}[t]{0.5\linewidth}
17. \centering
18. \input{figure2.pgf}
19. \label{Figure2}
20. \caption{This is caption for Figure 2.}
21. \end{minipage}
22. \end{figure}
23.
24. \end{document}

But instead of getting them side by side, I get them one below the other... I have tried many different combinations and I can't find a way to make this work... pgf files are here https://a.uguu.se/DPFft8cqVVmz_code.7z if someone needs to test. Thank you

Put both of them inside the same figure environment.
Aside: Make sure to have the label after the caption.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.
