Mixed Feeling - But Overall Very Positive

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... read 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

Take an Hungarian if you can but in the absence if you are really keen on an item offer half the price and even... More

I had always wanted to visit the flea market in Budapest heard it was THE place to go, so headed off there last week. I found it to be the absolute pits! We got a taxi as its pretty far from town, the taxi cost £15 one way, we did get the bus back about £2! But hey ho it... 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

My teenage son had this on the top of his list of places to visit this trip to Budapest. I reluctantly agreed since we only use public transportation when we are in the city. From the city center we had to travel by one tram and two buses to get there and with one missed bus stop and retracing back... More

We took an uber to this flea market. Even our driver was skeptical that we would spend much time here and decided to wait outside. To be fair, we visited on a Thursday and perhaps 1/3 of the stalls/shops were open. But we suppose the fixed shops should be the best of it. And there is absolutely nothing you could... More
