While I'm not much on shopping all the major brand stores, just get out and walk and enjoy the festive atmosphere. There is any kind of food you could want and lots of little specialty shops.

I am not sure how many Thai massage parlours a city needs, but this street has loads. It is a street of two parts. One part is shopping and slightly better restaurants the other end seemed seedy with bars and massage parlours. It’s pedestrianised and...More

They say if you're in Budapest you gotta go to Vacci St. Well just like every tourist we did and it pretty much is like every other tourist shopping area we've been. Have a seat outside and have a drink and watch the people and...More

So this is probably Budapest's most famous street. There is a ton of shopping choices, okay restaurants, and great "people watching". I wasn't overly impressed as it felt like so many other main shopping streets... a lot of high-end shops. But paired with the other...More

Probably the most known tourist street Vaci does not in general provide tourist friendly service. No matter of age of the personnel we encountered very cold service (if any service at times). Some employees seemed pretty much annoyed when they had a customer. Budapest offers...More

If you are not into souvenirs or fashion, then walking down Vaci Street is pleasant and nice but really nothing special. Skip it if you don't have time.

Vaci Street was an amazing attraction on its own. A street devoted to shopping is always a winner. Besides the retail stores which include many global brands like Zara, H&M and the like, there are also other stores which specialize in Hungarian goods, chess sets,...More

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
