One of our members is taking us for a tour of her district – (District 9 – Up and coming Ferencváros).
This was once a sleepy area but it is slowly becoming a dynamic cultural scene partly fuelled by international students. A Danube promenade, museums, and cosy neighborhood bars are among the main attractions of Ferencváros. While at first glance the 9th may not seem like an obvious tourist destination, there are more than a few gems to be found. Müpa Budapest (formally known as the Palace of Arts) and the National Theatre, the Bálna (the “Whale”), the Holocaust Museum, Trafó Arts Centre, the Groupama Arena and Fradi museum, the Great Market Hall, Corvinus University are all to be found in the 9th, and if you’re a beer fan, this district is known by many as the craft-beer district!
