Budapest - Southern Pest (Chapter)
This is the Southern Pest chapter from Lonely Planet’s Budapest guidebook.
Jozsefvaros (Joseph Town) and Ferencvaros (Francis, or Franz, Town) are traditionally working class and full of students. They’re colourful areas and it’s a lot of fun wandering the backstreets, poking your nose into courtyards and small shops.
- take a trip through the near and distant past by wandering the corridors of the Hungarian National Museum, the nation’s treasure trove of historical artefacts and its memory for more than a century and a half
- wander through the Nagycsarnok, southern Pest’s well-endowed ‘Great Market’
- restaurants & bars
- admire the art and architecture of the art nouveau Museum of Applied Arts
Coverage includes: Jozsefvaros, Ferencvaros , Neighbourhood Top Five, Local Life, Getting There & Away, Sights, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment, Sleeping and Shopping.
