Located in the Hungarian capital, Budapest, district 11 became the seventh coolest neighbourhood in the world. The compilation of the British Time Out magazine ranked district 11, Újbuda, in the top 10. Újbuda and Budapest precede cities such as Melbourne, Hong Kong, Berlin or London.
The coronavirus pandemic has not completely disappeared. However, restrictions have eased in most countries compared to last year. As a result, tourism is also beginning to pick up. Many people travel for the sights of cities, but also for the cuisine of the destination. The British Time Out magazine has brought together the coolest neighbourhoods in the world in terms of gastronomy.
Újbuda in Budapest is the 7th coolest neighbourhood globally, according to the list of the British magazine.
The list was compiled by Time Out based on the food and beverage offerings of the place, as well as the nightlife and cultural entertainment options. A total of 27,000 participants were interviewed during the survey, and their responses were forwarded to a panel of experts. The final decision was made by the panel of experts, writes napi.hu.
The first place on the list was the Norrebro area in Copenhagen. Here, the wine bars and the bakeries are highlighted by the magazine. In second place is the Andersonville neighbourhood of Chicago, where green areas and the LGBTQ scene stand out. Jongno 3-ga in Seoul was the third on the list. Due to the unique atmosphere, nature, and hidden dance venues, it is worth visiting.
“Tree-lined Bartók Béla Boulevard brims with bohemian cafés, bars, and independent art galleries,”
writes Time Out about Újbuda. In addition, it is mentioned that the new Gellért Bath also attracts many tourists. According to the magazine, this is what a perfect day in Újbuda district in Budapest looks like: “Have breakfast at Eastern Café and Gallery before hiking up Gellért Hill. Once you’re back on Bartók Béla Boulevard, head over to Kopaszi Dam, where you’ll find plenty of lunch options and might even be able to sunbathe a little (weather permitting). Come evening, grab a drink and catch a gig at Dürer Garden.”
