It's very pleasant to walk the length of Vaci Street and take in the sights and sounds, from coffee shops, bars and restaurants, to high street chains. There are plenty of interesting sights along the way, lots of colour, many personalities, a truly eclectic mix, and best of all, most of it is pedestrianised, though watch out for those dangerous...

Souvenirs? Yup. Places to eat? Oh, yes. General shopping? That too. I spent two thoroughly enjoyable hours over the course of two days. Definitely on the list of things to do when I return.

Close to our hotel and the central market hall the Vaci Street (Vaci Utica) starts. It's very long, nice to see but full of tourists. That's very sad, cause the potential is very high but due to tourism the prices are higher than otherwise..

The street is quite long, it crosses almost the whole of Pest. Very colorful, you can just walk around it, stopping periodically in a cafe. Many small shops that sell the same souvenirs are not very good quality.

This is one of the main shopping areas in the city but it is much more than a collection of shops and restaurants. As well as being the centre of the tourist tat the buildings themselves are worth a look especially on the upper floors where the architecture remains unaffected by modern store fronts.

This is the"centre" of the city, full with shops, and expensiv restaurants. There are some very nice building in the street if you look up. It is worth to stroll through once.

Interesting to walk along. No cars so safe. Good for window shopping and checking out the various eating places.

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
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 and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
