Váci utca tour

 

Váci utca is/was the chicest street in the City of Pest. Living here wasn’t only trendy, it was necessary in regard to make a successful business. As reported by the Magyar Bazár in 1866: “The whole country is familiar with their reputation. There is no doubt every woman... is familiar with the shop’s best characteristics.” Váci utca hosted the fanciest shops of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, being very central it had the most beautiful buildings at all time. Come with us and see it all, inside-out!

 

Király utca Tour

 

Király utca, also known as Budapest's Design Street, is filled with interior design and furniture stores, funky boutiques and modern art galleries, but it is not new that it is the trendiest part of Budapest. Király utca used to be the outer boundary of the former Jewish quarter. Gozsdu Court, a series of courtyards connecting Király utca and Dob utca, is also located here. This was once the core of the Jewish quarter with stores and workshops. Today, it's a residential complex with restaurants and cafés. Gozsdu Court comes alive every day, but we can make it even more interesting, and not just by shopping around and lunching. A weekly Sunday bazaar held from spring to fall. Don't forget that Andrássy Avenue runs parallel to Király utca and is only two blocks away, and the only Magyar Card printer had his factory on Kazinczy utca.
