I have been here four times, each time I go to Budapest, and I've always left with something I treasure. Sure, there are fakes and yes, there are Nazi and Soviet artifacts that most would find offensive (Hey, this is not your country or culture, so calm down. We all loathe Nazis and fully understand what the symbols mean. No... More

I just add to a previous review ..So many people visit in the week .Do'nt !!! Saturday is the day when the place is fully occupied otherwise you will be disappointed .Try to find your way on public transport .All part of the adventure.... It is nothing like the great flea markets in Paris and London..but is worth a visit..

Just outside the city centre is Esceri flea market - here you will find a huge choice of antiques and collectable items from Russian badges, retro furniture and a whole host of collectable items. Outside the main city area - so either take to bus number 54 from Borarass Ter or take a taxi about £14 from city centre. Well... More

This place was suggested by my brother and I was not expecting much. But when I saw that memories can be sold in the form of helmets, porcelains, paintings, jewellery, coins, bullets... lots of history, memories, nostalgia, a curiousity to know the truth have emerged inside me. I think that one can travel within the flea bazaar for hours and... More

So we went on a quiet Monday morning...thankfully! It was stressful enough haggling with people in Hungarian, which I don't speak. The people were kind and helpful and we found a lot of great stuff. However, there were some merchants selling iron crosses and swastikas. I could not tolerate dealing with people that would traffic in that "memorabilia". If you... More

Very little stalls are open in winter, was quite a dissapointment. Think it's very nice in summer though. Saw lots of interesting treasures behind the windows!

I live in Budapest and visit Ecsesri regularly. It is not really a place I would recommend to casual visitors despite its reputation as being a huge flea and antique market. Firstly, the ONLY day worth going on is Saturday, whatever time of the year, and out of tourist season even Saturdays can be disappointing, especially in really bad weather... More
