An exciting example of tactical urbanism in Hungary is the creation of a "New Boulevard" in Budapest, between the Small and the Great Boulevard (more precisely between Andrássy street and Üllői street, connecting Székely Mihály - Kazinczy - Szentkirályi streets), where, according to the project description, "people like to walk, shop, organise community activities and neighbourhood programmes: a people-centred boulevard, where human encounters and urban recreation are at the forefront, alongside the birdsong."

Kán is a settlement formed at the junction of the Mecsek and the Zselic, in a valley running north-south. The village is surrounded on all sides by woods, and is a one-street village, making it geographically isolated from traffic. The Swabian village dates back to the 12th century, but has been depopulated several times in its history.
After the Second World War, following the German expulsions, the inhabitants left the village and in 1978 Kán ceased to exist as an independent municipality, and a year later it was annexed to the village of Hetvehely.
The historic centre of Rotterdam had to be rebuilt after World War II. At the time, planners thought of the city centre not as a place to live, but as a place where people came to work and shop. As a result, many tall buildings were erected and wide roads were created for cars. In recent decades, however, city leaders have realised that this is unsustainable and have started to plan on a 'pedestrian-friendly', 'people-friendly' scale: they have started to develop cycling infrastructure, reduce car traffic, create new housing units, etc.
