What to pay: Fair prices, cheaper then else, but not the cheapest.

The shop is open from 10:00 am until about 5:00 pm at least (maybe not on sunday...)
What to buy: Majolika items - mugs, plates, etc.
What to pay: Items starting from 1-2 EUR

The Hungarian "Tisza" brand (it's actually a river's name originally) was big during the communism. The "Tisza cipo" (Tisza shoes) was for long the only sportshoe available over here (besides some chinese ones...).
Now, that the retro style is such a good business, someone decided to renew this brand and sell the original stuff and some newly designed ones as well.
Open from 10 am to 7 pm on weekdays, and from 10 am to 2 pm on saturday.
What to buy: A pair of shoes from here and your friends abroad will be looking up to you! :)
What to pay: Average sporting goods prices...maybe a little less :)
