Vaci utca sports the usual slew of souvenir shops mixed in with department stores and restaurants. It is clean and will lull you into a false sense of security, but beware the pickpockets & beggars! Lots of hawkers for everything from the Ice Bar to soap samples. Most of the shops are tourist friendly and speak at least a little English!

This shopping area has changed quite some through the years, there used to be all kinds of different little shops but they are gone. Now al you see are the big names, Zara, C&A, H&M, Marks and Spencer. The same stores you have in you hometown.

How can you not fall in love with this part of Budapest. It is Shoping galore. Evrything that you might need, you will find here. Window shopping are just as nice if you dont shop. There are one store that sold music gifts including Vienna world products. Dont wait till you get in Vienna (if that is your next stop) as that is what I did and was very dissapointed to see they dont have have the stuff that this store in Budapest has. Beautiful street. Not to be missed if you visit Budapest!!

Quite long pedestrian street full of bars,restaurants,shops and LOTS of people. Beware of pickpockets and "working" girls. Some hawkers and beggars too, but overall nice lively street.

Rather long and interesting street with beautiful architecture, shops, restaurants and cafe. You can buy some souvenir there also. Some buildings were renewed at the moment we visited Budapest so it would become more beautiful and attractive.
