Vaci is the most beautiful street in Budapest in my opinion, in the heart of the city. it's a pedestrian street with lost of chic shops and cafes, very nice in the summer! It is almost beside the river. very close. It's on the Pest side of the city.
From the Serb church walk back towards Vaci utca and make a right. Walk a few blocks and once you pass Szabad Sauto utca you will be in the main shopping and pedestrian area of Vaci utca. It is full of cafes, shops, and statues.
This statue is of Hermes, the Greek messenger god.
The heart of Budapest is Váci Street between Vörösmarty Square and Elizabeth Bridge. The street gained its status in the mid-19 th century when the original small buildings and shops were replaced by neo-Classical and Eclectic apartments, department-store, international trade-centre and hotel located here, making Váci Street another Symbol of Budapest.
Remember: Váci út and Váci utca are two different streets . While "Váci utca" ("Váci street") is the famous pedestrian street in the centre, "Váci út" is a wide main street in a northern suburb!
This vehicle-free street runs parallel to the river in Pest, about two blocks from the river.
You'll find many shops and people; all the things you would expect to find in the tourist areas. There are several nice cafes in this area.
Vaci utca, a long pedestrian street is a delightful place to spend an hour or two. Mixed in with international designer and perfume shops you will find many smaller shops offering Hungarian handicrafts.-

The most central and famous street of Budapeest is Vaci utca. Located just in the center of the Inner city, 2 minouts from the Danube bank. Vaci utca is a big pedestrian zone with houndreds of nice restaurantrs, stylish cafes and expensive shops.
By day there are many tourists who come to see the streets beautiful architecture, fountains, and the lovely Vorosmarty square where there are many street vandors... by night Vaci utca is the most crowded place in Budapest, while in some parts of the city you cant find people on the streets in Vaci utca the nightlife just begin...
This is the pedestrian street no tourist visiting Budapest would ever miss. However, its character is of the present rather than the past. Even so, strollers may discover fine mosaics and wrought-iron work by looking up at the facade of the older houses.
Váci utca (Váci Street) is Hungary's version to Bond Street in London. Lined with expensive boutiques and dozens of souvenir shops, this pedestrian-only thoroughfare is Budapest's most upscale shopping street and one of its most touristy areas.
Always busy with people, some great shopping but a bit on the high side price-wise. A lot of gypsy women are there with babies in bundles slung across them asking for money to feed the babies. You don't actually see the baby - could be a pillow for all I knew.
Sooner or later, every visitor to Budapest ends up on Vici utca. Once the main road of the city, this chic street has been filled with fancy boutiques and elegant cafés for at least a century and a half. The northern stretch of the street - pedestrianized a few decades ago - has long been considered "the" Vici utca, the heart of the elite shopping district. Within the last few years, the city wisely pedestrianized the south end of Vici utca as well, literally paving the way for its rapid gentrification. Vici utca is perfect for window-shopping and people-watching - touristy, yes, but irresistable.
Hey this site is called Virtual 'Tourist' and this is the street that you will find the tourists. You will also find an abundance of eateries, all advertising 'tourist' menus packed with goulash and paprikash and other recognizable Hungarian dishes. You'll find fashionable shops and fashionable people, internet cafes and over-priced stores full of stuff you can by cheaper elsewhere. But hey, there's great people watching.
Go to Vaci Utca, the main walk street on the Pest side. Touristy, but lots of life and nice cafes to sit down at. At one end is the Cafe Gerbaud, a must see, on the other end is the indoors market place bussling with activity.
