The renewal of the centrally located 275 m long and 27m wide promenade of the city – formerly a main road bearing heavy traffic – was envisaged as being the focal point of the overall inner city rehabilitation of Hódmezővásárhely. Indeed within the framework of 5 projects the inner city has taken up a new look that aims to draw tourists and young people to the city. The new promenade and the surroundings of the House of Culture aim to give space for everyday life, for spending quality time in public space, to leisure activities and festivals. It also aims to inspire new investments and further developments to rise.
