One of my favourite Budapest places is the Central Market Hall (Nagy Vasarcsarnok in Hungarian). Several reasons: it is very central, worth while to visit with its heritage and beautiful architecture. To be honest, it doesn’t look like a ‘wet market’. It has very beautiful designs on its gate, the produce offered are very fresh. If you are visiting Budapest in Spring, the strawberries are really delicious. On the second floor, you can find Langos and eat it on the spot. Here’s another view of the iron grillings of the gate.
One of the proudest things in Budapest is their Tram 4-6 tramways public transportation. It is very efficient to bring you from part of the downtown to the other. All within 20 minutes if you begin from Oktogon (area as shown on this photo). Besides, it is considered a thematic sightseeing routes on tram no. 4-6. From Buda, Szell Kalman ter passing through Margit Bridge, make way on Grand Boulevard in Pest, returning to Buda side through Petofi Bridge. The only difference is Tram 4 ends at Fehervari ut, while Tram 6 ends at Moricz Zsigmond korter. The other way to sightsee can be done along the line of the Millennium Underground Railway which is now part of the UNESCO World Heritage. Click on to have a look.
For Avenues, the four avenues in Budapest are Andrassy ut, Rakoczi ut, Ulloi ut, and Vaci ut. Don’t confuse Vaci ut, with Vaci utca. Because, utca means ‘Street’. And Vaci ut is one of the busiest and widest avenues in Budapest. A few notable buildings are the Nyugati Railway Station, Lehel Market, Budapest Bank HQ, WestEnd City Center to name a few.
There are three interesting Boulevards in Budapest, namely: Grand Boulevard, Hungaria Korgyuru and the Small Boulevard. Others are avenues, and the notable streets are Akacfa utca, Akademia, Budapest Museum Quarter, Gat, Haller, Mester and Vaci. Of course, Vaci Street is one of the most famous featuring lots of shops and restaurants catering to the tourist market.
There are many interesting facades to be seen in Budapest itself. Most of their exteriors are of the 16th and 18th centuries, very small percentage are newly built. You will also noticed the contrasted shades of medium warm yellow is a unique color all around.
