The best of shopping in Budapest
Lovers of designer goods, and perfectly presented boutiques, will enjoy spending hours on Váci Utca, the popular pedestrian promenade that forms one of the centres of Budapest’s shopping scene. From there it is a short distance to Deák Ferenc utca and the breath-taking Andrássy Avenue, home to famous designer shops boasting cutting edge, international fashions.
While on Andrássy Avenue, those wishing to take a break from their Budapest shopping experience will be amply rewarded with a trip to the Alexandra bookstore and café. Housed in the former Paris Department Store, visitors to this café can enjoy their drinks under beautiful chandeliers and fresco-style paintings that are reminiscent of a renaissance ballroom.
The best of both worlds
Hungary is on the border between Western and Eastern Europe and Budapest’s shopping options reflect this. Exploring some of Budapest’s quieter streets will reveal a range of charming shops selling unique embroidered table clothes and dresses, and exquisite hand-painted Herend porcelain. After a day exploring the shops guests can return to a comfortable room at the Park Inn by Radisson, Budapest.
Whatever you are there to buy, a day’s shopping in Budapest can fly by, but there is no need to lament the closing time in Hungary’s capital; when the city’s shops close, it is time to enjoy the Budapest nightlife.
