It was great to see a local market thanks to TripAdvisor reviews. Fascinating to see so many different types of pickles! We enjoyed the place a lot but I don’t seek glamorous tourist spots. Glad to have had a chance to peek into ordinary life.

It's really rather a market than a mall, so I don't think you'd find there a laundry. But there is one nearby (at Bessenyei str. 16.) called Bubbles, check out their webpage for more information.
