Budapest newest shopping center is opening today. The name of the center in Hungarian is Corvin Bevásárlóközpont, and it is a part of the project named Corvin Sétány (Corvin Avenue). This is a project in the eight district of Budapest, known as one of the worst districts in the capital, demolishing old and ugly houses, building new flats, opening new restaurants, a shopping center, a fitness center and creating new office buildings.
Today is the day of the official opening of the shopping center, while most restaurants in the area are expeceted only to open in March/April 2011. In Corvin Shopping center you can find for example: C&A, Hervis, Alexandro (book store), T-Mobile, CBA (grocery store) and quite some more shops. Maybe this new centre also will bring life to the kind of abandoned Corvin cinema?
