Budapest was a very important shopping place 100 years ago. But when the communists took the power after world war II, the shopping enjoyment decreased.
Nowadays you can buy in Budapest anything you want. There are a lot of shopping centres and streets which enriches the shopping opportunities of the visitor by its extensive offers.
It’s told that the real Hungarian shopping experience is possible by a visit in the market hall or a walk through the famous flea market “Ecseri”.
Budapest is also a good place to buy art objects, similar to London or Paris.
