A long way to travel from the centre and a massive disapponitment. I went on a Friday morning and I was one of about five visiting the market. I was expecting a market with at least some bric-a-brac, rather like a car boot sale. Instead there was hardly anything outside these tiny indoor units. They then had something like maybe... More

This flea market is situated a way out from the city centre so the best way to get there is by taxi. We were recommended to book our taxis there and back in advance which we did. (Watch out for the beautifully crafted eagle statue en route.) We arrived shortly after opening time only to discover that hardly anyone was... More

It's a bit of a trek from the city centre but well worth a visit if you love browsing at flea markets. It's a large market with a mixture of open air stalls, shops and lock-ups. I found the sellers were open to haggling. Very few speak English so take a pen and paper to scribble down your offers... I... More

My husband and I were able to visit this huge flea market with my Hungarian cousin, and we realized that having someone with us who spoke fluent Hungarian was a bonus. I’m not sure that we would have had such a great time without my cousin’s ability to know if we were getting good deals, and without his ability to... More

Plenty of Communist era items, brass knuckles, knives, guns. Vintage/antique furniture, watches, porcelain, interesting vintage dolls (my husband says they're 'weird', jewelry, etc. Fun way to spend the early morning on Saturday when the rest of the city is just waking up.

Visited market on a Friday, half of the shops were closed and almost we were the only visitors in the entire market. We walked around, started with the covered area. Vendors can smell from a distance if you are a cheap fellow or you are going to buy something. Everything cost HUF 5000, 10000, 25000, they don't really use figures... More

If your a treasure hunter and you love to find those special items... then this is the place for you! The market is filled with unique items and interesting sights. I can highly recommend this market to any tourist who is willing to take an adventure and mingle with the locals. Be ready to barter and haggle the prices and... More

I think the place is quite overrated. Souvenirs in particular are not so unique, as the reviews would have you believe.

The basics: As other reviewers have said, it is easy to get to via public transportation (I took the #2 Tram and Bus 54). In my opinion it is safe - it's sort of in the suburbs. Not a dodgy part of town. Didn't cost anything to get in. Not a lot of english speakers but it's easy enough to... More
