Cleveland’s Buckeye Neighborhood Was Once Little Budapest And It’s Still Rich With Culture
The best aspect of life in Cleveland is the allure of local culture. Our city is a melting pot, and it has thus absorbed the influence of a number of cultures. This is evident in places like AsiaTown and Little Italy… but what about Little Budapest? Believe it or not, Cleveland once had such a great concentration of Hungarian culture that we had our very own Little Budapest. The influence of Hungarians in Cleveland remains to this day in and around this charming neighborhood.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
The prominence of Hungarians in Cleveland is evident to this day, especially in and around Hungarian-inspired eateries and bakeries. Do you have any Hungarian ancestors? Were you raised celebrating any Hungarian traditions or holidays? We’d love to hear about them!
