A central street of Budapest, Hungary, Vaci Utca features an impressive number of shops and restaurants. The only traffic is that of tourists on foot, given that Vaci Utca is a street for pedestrians ... Read more
only. Over time, it has capitalized on the tourist market, offering exclusive and pricey souvenirs and designer brands for shoppers. Tucked away from the main street are various courtyards which offer local food at more affordable prices. The street is an experience all on its own, but also connects two other tourist attractions. Vaci Utca is situated between Nagycsamok, or Great Market Hall, and Vörösmarty Square.

Ketpo, Hungary

Hungary’s shopping street. Even in the communist era this street was known for luxury shops. Novadays you will find a lot of gift shops and all the big fast fashion brands here (Zara, Mango, H&m win an amazing historical building).

As a local I don't recommend you this street. There are much better restaurants and pubs in the city than here. You should visit maximum the souvenir shops.

One of the most famous pedestrian shopping streets in Hungary. In about 30 minutes you can walk all its' way. long Bars, restaurants, souvenir shops, and even Thai massage parlours can be found here! What I liked the most are the beautiful buildings, really well kept :)

Lots of shops and places to eat - mostly targeting tourists. Guys - be careful about girls that approach you asking if you want to get a drink...it is a scam.

Oldest shopping street and pedestrian area in the downtown, 2 kilometers long from the famous Gerbeaud Café on Vörösmarty tér till the Grand Central Market hall on Fővám tér. Shops of leading brands, cafés, snack places. In the middle of the street at Kigyó utca turn to Március 15. tér (square) to the Danube side make some photos about Elisabeth bridge and take a sit in the afternoon at KIOSK for a drink or snack in summer afternoons or evenings.

Vaci Utca is a pedestrian street near the Pest waterfront in downtown Budapest. It's where you'll find many of the city's finest restaurants and boutiques and one of the best places for a nighttime stroll.

Vaci Utca is one of Budapest's main pedestrian thoroughfares and a great place for shopping. It can get quite busy during the summer months, but at any other time it's easy to take your time and stroll down the street. There's a lot of international brands - BCBG, Hugo Boss, Zara - mixed with some Hungarian stores as well. The cafes are also great, especially when you can sit outside, but they do run on the more expensive side.

The main street, you can't ignore.
Great place for making change with your money,
or to eat (Gerbaud, up there, Fatal at the middle, or the Great Market)

Улица Ваци является сердцем Будапешта, которая идет от площади Воросмарти до моста Элизабет. Улица приобрела такой статус в середине 19 века когда изначальные небольшие здания и маленькие магазинчики были заменены постройками в стиле неоклассицизма и эклектики. Здесь располагаются самые фешенебельные жилые дома, крупные универмаги, роскошные отели и международный торговый центр, что делает улицы Ваци еще одним символом Будапешта.

La calle Vaci es una de las calles más populares de Budapest. Es la calle comercial más antigua de la ciudad y, dado que es peatonal, uno de los lugares más concurridos por los turistas. Discurre entre la plaza Vorosmarty y el Mercado Central y está llena de comercios y restaurantes.
Aunque ahora es un tanto turística y los suvenires son algo más caros que en otros lugares de la ciudad, muchos de los edificios que la componen datan del siglo XVIII y suele haber muy buen ambiente, tanto de día como de noche.
