Ningbo being an important port also had a sizeable European community during the 1800-1900s, especially British as it was a British treaty port. So it got its own Bund, built on the same principle as the more famous namesake in Shanghai. However, the Ningbo Bund is allegedly older than the one in Shanghai, even though it is much smaller. Be that as it may, it has now been restored to its former glory. Many of the old European style houses have been renovated, and new ones have been built.
