Herendi Belvedere Brand Shop
Hungarian porcelain history
Hungarian grannies are bound to keep at least one Herendi porcelain on their shelves. The history of the Herendi Porcelain Manufactory, that has survived bankruptcy and world wars, is tightly intertwined with Hungarian history. The Belvedere Brand Shop on Andrássy Avenue (Andrássy út) offers the iconic products of this manufactory, and more: a historic showroom close to the shops of the most prestigious brands.

Casual deluxe at the foot of the Castle
Bolhapalota is the riskiest place to go for addicts of clothes and knick-knacks. The place is filled with the coolest antiquities, second-hand fashion accessories, funny things of no use whatsoever, vinyls and psoters. It’s a depository of extremely original but affordable souvenirs. Spend at least an hour to look through their selection.
