Good Shopping Opportunities

Whether you are after souvenirs or presents for your friends, or in for some serious shopping, Hungary offers many opportunities. Hand-made, painted porcelains, crystals, laces and other pieces of folk art such as woven cloths, embroideries and glazed pottery are all typical Hungarian souvenirs.

Hungary's contemporary design scene's bustling, too. Besides the usual flea markets, an exciting newcomer is the monthly WAMP design market which promotes Hungarian designers.

When it comes to shopping, Budapest is perfect for shopaholics. Walking down leafy Andrássy Avenue is a pleasure in itself, but the glittering flagship stores of international brands also make it a favourite destination for the discerning shopper.

But if you're in for some local colour, leave the shopping centres behind and head to the small streets of the 5th district, where young and innovative Hungarian fashion designer's shop can be found such as Nanushka, USE Unused, Suis Belle ect.

Near to Christmas time, Advent fair's are waiting for you with hot wine and plenty ideas for presents under the tree in every major towns in the country.
