    Central Market Hall

    0.08 mi from Vaci Utca
    31 reviews

    Beautiful building, one of those great old wrought-iron situations with a huge glass-top central atrium. In my memory, it just goes up and up and up, like a fantastical department store...but one where the departments are just meat and cheese, and a smattering of veg. Oh, also, wine: we got little tumblers of tokaji, and someone had drawn smiley faces ...

    The Great Market Hall or Central Market Hall (Hungarian "Nagycsarnok"), on Fővám Tér in the 9th district, is the largest indoor market in Budapest. It was designed and built by Samu Pecz around 1896. The market offers a huge variety of stalls on three floors.

    Dive, but really cool. Downstairs are a couple of well used steel-tip dart boards, lots of American icon posters and a cozy wood-themed decor. Upstairs at the bar are talkative, welcoming locals.

    19 reviews

    Many bars in Budapest are housed within abandoned or run-down buildings, or in the courtyards of those buildings. Szimpla Kert is the best of the bunch. A relaxed courtyard atmosphere is augmented by beautiful mural art and a diverse clientele.

    Opera House

    21 reviews

    I saw the National Ballet perform at the Opera House in Budapest. This is a grand opera house in the old world style. Glamourous, traditional, with the act of attending feeling as important as what's happening on stage. I loved the gilt and red carpets everywhere.

    Beautiful building and really interesting to have a look around. There is a memorial in the shape of a willow tree there which is really nice as well. Worth a visit!

    Excellent co-ed baths at an affordable price and not too far from the Old Town Historic District. This is a place where you can spend an entire day since there are so many things to see and do and it is really huge.

    Not nearly as handsome as the Chain Bridge, Erzsebet Hid is a nod to modernist Soviet-era architecture. It's safe and the traffic is not too bad, what more can you ask?

    I went early in the morning so I practically had the place to myself. It's quite a steep climb but well worth it. Great views over the city and a picture taker's delight.

    The "free" Budapest walking tour is about 3 hours long and covers Hungarian history, culture and some main sights. The tour operates everyday and the energetic and peppy tour guide does a great job of sharing her history knowledge with some interesting stories that give you a great understanding of the city. While at times the tour drags on, I ...

    This really impressed me when I first saw it when I was 16 and has stayed with me ever since. Budapest must have just risen out of the Hungarian plains as a beacon.

    Great art museum, covering from the medieval times to current. This is where I discovered Bertalan Szekely (1835 - 1910), a Romantic artist. My favorite pieces of his here are the Women of Eger, and the Discovery of the Body of King Louis II.

    The Duna Corso in Pest is lined with several interesting statues. Closer to Parliament you'll find the likeness of the famed poet Attila Jozsef. The Little Princess is closer to Vaci Street and makes a fantastic foreground for shots of Buda Castle and Gellert Hill.

    Dedicated to the first Christian king of Hungary and the patron saint of the holiest cathedral. The basilica is truly stunning. The dome collapsed during the construction and the church was later designed in the neo-classical style. You can also see a mummified right hand of the patrol saint.
