Vaci Street (Vaci utca) Tours

460 Reviews
Vaci Street (Vaci utca)
Budapest’s principal shopping street, Vaci Street (Vaci Utca) runs for almost a mile, right through the heart of Pest. Lined with striking 19th-century buildings, the Grand Boulevard is the place for window shopping and people watching, with a huge selection of designer boutiques, high-street brands, souvenir shops, and cafés.
 
The Basics
The best way to explore the shopping street is to walk its entire length from Central Market Hall in the south to Vorosmarty Square (Vorosmarty Tér) at the northern end. Budapest city tours often include a stroll along Vaci Street, and joining a walking tour or Segway tour is an ideal way to get your bearings and discover the street’s architectural highlights.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Vaci Street is pedestrianized.
  • Most shops along Vaci Street are open Monday to Saturday, from 10am until 7–8pm. Some shops may open on Sundays.
  • Free Wi-Fi hotspots are located on and around Vaci Street.
 
How to Get There
Vaci Street is within walking distance of attractions, such as St. Stephen’s Square and the Chain Bridge. The closest metro stations are Deak Square (lines M2 and M3) or Vorosmarty Square (line M1).
 
When to Get There
Vaci Street, one of Budapest’s busiest streets, is a lively destination at all hours of the day. For shopping, make an early start from Monday to Saturday to avoid the main crowds. In the evening, the restaurants around Vorosmarty Square offer plenty of dining options. Peak season in Budapest is July to August, but during the Christmas season Vaci Street is lit up with festive illuminations and Vorosmarty Square hosts a gigantic Christmas market.
 
A Walking Tour of the Pest Side
Linking many Budapest attractions, Vaci Street makes a good place to start your city walking tour. From Central Market Hall, head north to Vorosmarty Square, grabbing coffee at Café Gerbeaud. Then, take a short stroll to Chain Bridge to admire views along the Danube River and the Buda Castle district. Head east to St. Stephen’s Square to appreciate St. Stephen's Basilica, before continuing to Andrassy Avenue, which runs all the way to Heroes’ Square.
