As it is said this market is not for tourists, and hence if you don’t need fruits or meat for yourself, you probably find it boring and doesn’t worth the travel. The goods are OK but not more than that. It is not beautiful, and...More

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.
