The former main street of the historical Ferencváros district in Pest has seen amazing development in the past 15 years. Ráday utca connects busy Pest square Kálvin tér with the southern part of the Grand Boulevard. Cafés, restaurants, bookshops and snack bars have popped up like mushrooms after the rain around Kálvin tér, and the street has been partially turned into a pedestrian-only street recently - only the bus nr. 15 is allowed to use the street in a protected lane.
The most popular places here are the Berliner restaurant, in a cavernous underground room, serving huge platefuls of food; the Paris, Texas (pizzeria and café), and the Pink Cadillac (restaurant). From late afternoons onwards, the place has an atmosphere compared to the Quartier Latin in Paris, due to several university dorms and schools in the vicinity. A great plus is that here you will find more Hungarians than tourists here.
