Best Shopping in Budapest

By Verdict Staff


As you would expect from a major destination, Budapest does not disappoint when shopping is the choice of entertainment.

With traditional stores alongside modern designer boutiques, we feel the elite shopper will be able to find whatever they are searching for. Here is also Arena Plaza, one of the city’s major shopping districts.


Arena Plaza is the largest and most modern shopping center in Hungary.

It is unique in more than one respect: its size means it can not only offer a wide range of international brands, but also a number of high quality leisure services. Set within an area of parkland, this plaza shopping center has nearly 200 stores, including international luxury brands only recently introduced to the Hungarian market, such as Peek & Cloppenburg, Oysho and Gant. Arena Plaza’s most attractive features are its bright and lofty space and stylish modern design. The center also boasts almost 30 restaurants as well as Cinema City, the biggest multiplex movie complex in Central Eastern Europe, and the only IMAX cinema in Hungary. The cinema’s 32- and 40-seat VIP theaters show new releases every week and provide excellent food and drink as well as comfortable leather armchairs to enhance the experience. These five theaters also provide closed viewings and are ideal for exclusive corporate product presentations, conferences, friendly gatherings or birthday parties.
