Place of interest

182

If you are interested in applied arts, there is a great exhibition in the Museum of Applied Arts on Üll?i út. This imposing building was designed by Ödön Lechner and Gyula Pártos. It was opened in 1896 on the Millennium celebrations. The interesting design is a combination of Hungarian folk art and “Mogul” motifs. It is because that time lot of people thought that the Hungarians origin was in the Indian sub-continent. On the building you can also see the typical use of the famous coloured pyrogranite ceramics made at Zsolnay factory in Pécs.


Nearby is the great Corvin Cinema, one of the oldest cinemas in Budapest. It has been renovated in recent years, so nowadays it is a comfortable and modern cinema, where you can see a movie if you would like to. Its small café is also a great place to take a rest.

The small streets north of this part of the Great Boulevard (József körút, Ferenc körút) have some great places where you can take a rest. Lots of young people bought here flats, so it is becoming more popular with its relatively cheap and atmospheric bars, small squares, cafés or other peaceful places. If you would like to see these, you should visit Mikszáth tér or Ráday utca, to the north of József körút and Ferenc körút. These places are quite popular, and lots of students come here to take a rest and talk with friends from the nearby universities. If you come here evening time, there are also some small concerts or other kind of performances to see, in the bars, or sometimes on the streets as well.


Further, but still near Üll?i út, you can visit the Botanical Gardens or the nearby Natural History Museum. T reach these you should take the metro from Ferenc körút. From here you can easily reach one of the most popular Hungarian foot-ball group’s stadium, the Fradi Ground. There is also a restaurant, where you can see pictures, and other relics of fans and the group.

If you walk to Boráros tér, a busy square next to Pet?fi Bridge, you can take a pleasant walk on a new promenade, which leads you to the new National Theatre and the so known Palace of Arts (M?vészetek Palotája). This great, modern building complex was built in recent years. It is planed, that this part of the district will become an important cultural centre.
