Budapest travel tips

1) In Budapest, there may be the same street addresses in different parts of the city

Unicum bitter is one of the national drinks in Hungary. It is made from 40 different herbs by the Zwack family company. The bitter is sold in all souvenir shops, but it will cost much cheaper directly at the factory, where you can sign in for a guided tour.

2) The main shopping street of Budapest is Vaci utca

Vaci utca is a pedestrianised street in the centre of Budapest with all the major brand stores. You can also visit the shopping malls like WestEnd and Arena Plaza. The latter one is the largest mall in Europe.

3) Check out the Open Book fountain in Budapest, which creates an amazing illusion

In Budapest, on the Henszlmann Imre street, there is an unusual Open Book fountain. It is actually a large open volume made of marble. Jets of water rise from the book's binding and create an illusion that the pages of the book are slowly turning over.
