This street runs from the central food market to the central city area. It is for pedestrians only and contains a lot of shops, cafes and restaurants and is very touristy but is still a nice walk.

Avoid at all costs, restaurants and cafes too expensive, filled with lots of cheap souvenir shops and too many people on "stag" weekends.

This is the main shopping street for tourists. The ambience is nice, plenty of shopping options and even more eateries. A bit on the expensive side owing to the fact that its a tourist hot spot. Still, worth a evening stroll.

Ok, so it is like any other main street in a big city but then being a tourist don't you want to be here and take in the experience? Plenty of cafes, restaurants, shopping stores, souvenir shops are located here.

All major cities have this street. In Copenhagen it's called Strøget and in L.A it's called Hollywood boulevard. It's not a street where you go to satisfy your taste buds or thirst. But it's still a street you need to visit. Its lively, filled with tourist traps, useless souvenir shops and other commodity stores. So go their to see it... More

Not a shopper myself - but worth a stroll down just for the hustle & bustle! Some nice restaurants dotted around amongst the shops

Not much to see. All the souvenir shops are the same. Gets really boring after a short while. Not something special to look forward to.

Busy street full of shops, cafes, restaurants, offices. OK for people watching. Thousands of tourists and locals. Just another European city street. Would not go again.

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
