This shopping street is just like other shopping street in other big cities. Many stores that you also find in other cities. Aside from stores there are lots of cafes.

Enjoyed visiting, despite being crowded and a little touristy. Actually did a little shopping. Some good shops, restaurants were not our style, but there were quite a few to choose from if you're looking for something to eat.

Walked up and down here taking in all it has to offer. Very busy with tourists but it has a great vibe. Many shops, restaurants, bars every other seller you can think of. It comes alive at night especially now with the Christmas market on.

Vaci street starts by Central Market and ends at Vorosmarty Square. I preferred the start of it as it was more quaint. Lots of restaurants and tourist shops. It is the main shopping street in Budapest and is pedestrianised.

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

I stayed at Pest Side and it was great. The hotel was BO18 and although it is not right in the centre, the metro takes you directly there with no hassle. This is just to avoid walking. Vaci Street is a very nice street and... More
