city centre

n. the central part of a city [syn: city center, central city]

City Centre (Miskolc)

Miskolc City Centre is basically the historical part of the city of Miskolc, Hungary. Most of the other parts of the city were either independent towns and villages previously, or they were built later.

Many of the characteristic buildings of Miskolc can be found in the city centre, although the most famous ones, like the castle of Diósgyőr or the Cave Bath of Lillafüred are outside of it.

City centre (Doetinchem)

Stadscentrum or Centrum is the most central district of Doetinchem, the biggest city in the Gelderse Achterhoek. On the south side of the district is the Oude IJssel river, which can be crossed via three bridges; the Europabrug, the Oude IJsselbrug and the Saap Roelofsbrug. The city centre consists of what used to be the historical city of Doetinchem, until it got bombed by the British in 1945, who presumably mistook the city for the city of Kleve, Germany. During this bombing, large parts of the district went up in dust, including most of the city wall and city gates. Reminding of these are the street names in the district and the piece of wall remaining by the riverbank of the Oude IJssel.

In this district you will find the regular services to be found within any city centre, such as shops (with mostly regional functions), multiple restaurants, bars and cafés and a hotel. Cultural services can be found in the district as well.
