In its restored state, the historic building could join the capital’s lengthy list of tourist attractions. A 120-year-old traditional market hall reopened in the heart of central Budapest’s ruin pub district last October and could become the capital’s new must-see tourists spot.
The market, which boasts a total floor area of 7000 square metres, came 27th on the 31-item list of the New Year’s most interesting new places for tourists to see around the world. The list is led by climbing Nicaragua’s highest active volcano, followed by a trip on Japan’s new bullet train route and spotting newly introduced lions at Akagera National Park in Rwanda.
Well it might not be quite up there with those, but it’s well worth a visit if you are looking for some fresh home-grown produce in a beautiful modern environment.
