Good for a stroll down, lots of tourist trap restaurants, shops (Adidas, Pandora etc), souvenir shops and massage places. We were offered iPhones by people who were obviously not official Apple representatives, so be careful with your valuables.........

Busy, busy, busy is the best way to describe this shopping heaven. Designer shoes, clothing and handbags are on display. Tourist trap souvenir shops and overpriced restaurants line the street. From the famous Gerhard pastry shop and all the way to the large market, you...More

This is a great street to just wander along at your leisure, crowded but not too much so. The street is lined with cafes and restaurants, tourist shops and bars, and some hidden gems. The perfect place for a morning stroll, an afternoon wander, or...More

Whatever you would like, you will find it on this beautiful lively street. People watching, shopping, souvenirs, ice cream, restaurants, etc. A must visit!

European walking streets are fun, however this one appears to have more souvenir shops and clip joints than most. Some hassle factor. Good route from riverside hotels to Budapest Central Market Hall.

District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube,
with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The
Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica
stand out as two of the finest examples of
architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for
more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval
city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while
the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention
