International Tourism Days

District IX., 1-3 Vámház Blvd. – Budapest

Each International Day is held  on the same  week-days and time :

Thursday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. 

A great part in bringing under the umbrella these live events is the Municipality Hall and Market Board of Directors and the Embassies in Budapest.

There are so many places and venues to visit whether your just visiting, staying or working in Budapest beside rolling along the historical buildings, visiting museums or to watch the world go by, sitting outside a coffee shop or restaurant by the lazy River Danube on your free day. Yet to visit the Grand Market by itself  is also a unique experience in Budapest. The building itself was dressed up in the 19th century with a unique architecture, colorful porcelain ornaments from Zsolnay – Porcelain Manufacture Ltd.  Stepping inside the entrance gate immediately catch the eye of its beauty. It is also one of the oldest and huge market in Europe. Also won the 1st place by the CNN chose among the 5 most vibrant city markets in Europe, followed by Mercat de San Josep de la Boqueira in Barcelona, the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul, the Portobello Road market in London and Les Puces in Paris .

The Budapest’s Market Hall  has three-story, on the lower level fishmongers, special home-made Hungarian sour qualities, pickles and food shops. On the first floor products can be purchased to cook a good lunch, dinner. Upstairs is the area for buying all real souvenirs for tourists … a last chance to do it, if something is left out of the list before  traveling home. Well that was in brief what to expect in entering the Grand Market Hall.

Of course there is a reason about talking the Grand Market Hall …Each year the Grand Market Hall holds the so-called Tourism Days, whereas the aim is  to introduce within the 3-days event an exhibition of that particular country’s  international traditional food and tourist attractions. It may be an interesting day for locals and foreigners to have a tip … useful information and advice  for their upcoming traveling plans and also to get into the world of international food  and folk design items. This year some international days have had already been present, as the Hungarian Days, Cypriot Days, Moroccan Days, Croatian Days and Indonesian Days.
