As a book lover I wanted to buy a book as a souvenir from Budapest. I was happy to see the diversity in books and stationeries. I bought the book "the circle" which was on my wishlist for a longtime.

This bookstore has a large selection of English books on many subjects (and employees who speak English and Hungarian), and I've had good experiences buying them from the shelves and asking them to order something. They have new releases, classics, Hungarian topics (translated literature and...More

I loved this small store! The staff is proficient in English and knowledgable about the books. It was a pleasure to find a good bookstore carrying a wide variety of English books in a very central area (close to the basilica).

I stopped by Bestsellers to get the new Harry Potter novel and was surprised by the great selection! They also have a web store if they don't have what you want in stock

The selection of English books is quite big but unfortunately they have almost no Spanish books except for few. I was a bit disappointed over this and that's why I give it only 3 stars.

We were wandering the streets of Budapest on a Sunday when all but family owned stores are closed. We came upon this lovely boom shop which had both Hungarian but more importantly for us English books. Joy. After talking to the owner and having a...More

This little bookstore saved our trip. We stocked up on English books, and made travelling with two teenage boys (in need of some non-electronic entertainment) seem easy!

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
