We walked the length of Vaci Street. There were lots of souvenir stores and restaurants It is a pedestrian street. It was ok, but clearly not a highlight of Budapest. If your time is limited, skip this.

Not the bigest walking street in the center of Budapest, full with small stores that sell memorabilias, and lot of different restaurants. Overpriced, and overated.

I spent 4 days in Budapest and this was the worst place I visited during my stay. It is overcrowded and mostly overpriced preying on tourists. The stores are mostly chains like Foot Locker and souvenir shops selling stuff that is probably made in China....More

The Vaci street is a must see area in Budapest. It is full of coffee shops, restaurants and stores and it is a very lively street, where you certainly can find something of your taste.

Despite my frustration with the solicitation for sex, money exchange, and other nefarious tourist scams, this is still an important place to stop to see tourist high life. Just be aware of all the usual tourist scams here.

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
