We walked along Váci Street several times, it’s a nice enough street that is wide and traffic free
There are shops on both sides, a couple of high street names, a few independents and the usual suspects trying to sell tat to tourists
It a nice walk along it but there’s not a lot to make a special journey for

We strolled the Vaci from the Chain Bridge end to the other bridge and then back. It took us an hour or so, but we hopped into stores looking for Christmas ornaments and window shopped. There are plenty of places to eat, have a glass of wine or cup of coffee, and do a little shopping. It is a nice walk through Budapest architecture and culture.

Vaci utca has been and continues to be the heart of Pest. It is a pedestrian street and extends over 15 blocks, between Vorosmarty square and Fovam Square. For over 100 years, this was the place locals strolled on to see and be seen. On both sides of the street, every door is a shop, restaurant, cafe, bar or store. There are also antique galleries, art galleries, souvenir shops and more. Prices on this street are more expensive than a block or two away, but rent must be sky high. On a sunny day, this is where visitors should spend at least half a day and probably enjoy a cup of coffee, a glass of wine or a full meal.

It is not that special it's been told. There are just tourist rubbish shops- however you can sometimes find something nice too! For us it is always just a curiosity to walk there.

The street has changed in nature over the years. It had far more "Hungarian" shops when I first started visiting the City in the late 90s. Then it had a number of western chain stores take over (like Zara or Benneton). Now it has more restaurants. It needs more shops! Be careful at night, unless that is what you are into, as you will be propositioned by sex workers although they leave you alone if you firmly decline their offers.
