ShoppingShopping

Budapest is famous for its moderately priced antiques which you can find in places such as the Falk Miksa utca quarter. One of the most popular Hungarian souvenirs is handmade Herend porcelain, which has been in production since 1828. The beautiful, hand-painted vases, dishes and porcelain have won many gold medals at various world exhibitions. The factory’s own shop is on József Nádor square. Around the corner is Vörösmarty Square where you can either recover over a cup of coffee and a cream cake at the city’s most famous patisserie, Café Gerbeaud, or carry on to the former Luxus department store with the international fashion houses’ most famous stores. The Váciutca pedestrian street between Vörösmarty square and the Market Square is Budapest’s largest shopping centre. This is where you will find the international fashion houses’ own stores, souvenir shops, wine shops and several galleries. Do not miss the small cross-streets with their sweet little shops and upscale wine merchants. Many Budapest residents think that the prices in this area are too high and instead do their shopping in Pest’s gigantic Westend or in the shops in the Great Ring, which is what they call the boulevard around the city centre. The new, young shops are scattered around the centre on the Pest side. Király Street is being transformed into a design centre. Do not miss Nagycsarnok on Vámház street, Budapest’s great market hall built in 1896, which has everything that Hungary can offer in the way of food. Here you can buy Hungarian specialities such as, for example, the world-renowned Tokay wine Tokaji Aszú. “The wine of kings, the king of wines” – its special flavour is of sweet, overripe and shrivelled grapes. A dessert wine which complements cakes and desserts perfectly. On the first floor, they sell high quality Hungarian souvenirs such as cloth, garments etc.
