Shopping in Budapest
You can browse in tiny shops or spend hours in shopping centers in several places in the city. There are several huge shopping malls in Budapest; the biggest are the West End City Centre (www.westend.hu), situated between Nyugati and Lehel Squares in Pest and the Arena Plaza (www.arenaplaza.hu), near the Keleti Railway Station.
Two elements of the Budapest shopping experience that really should not be missed out on are a visit to one of the market halls and a trip out to the Ecseri Flea Market. But then there is also much to be discovered by taking a walk down Falk Miksa utca. This Pest street, like certain areas in Paris and Rome, has become a centre for antique shops.
Andrássy Avenue offers a wide-variety of luxury shops. Váci Street is a pesestrian street between the Vörösmarty Square and Ferenciek Square; and it is one of the most popular shopping streets in the city center. The biggest luxury brands opened stores here and in the Andrássy Avenue.
