Budapest Great Market Hall

Visited the beautiful city of Budapest, Hungary, last year where, amongst many other attractions, they have a wonderful indoor market.

The Great Market Hall or Central Market Hall is the largest and oldest indoor market in Budapest. It is located at the end of the famous pedestrian shopping street Váci utca and on the Pest side of the Liberty bridge at Fővám square. 

The building was designed and built by Samu Pecz around 1897 and it offers a huge variety of stalls on three floors. It has a distinctive architectural feature is the roof which was restored to have colorful Zsolnay tiling from Pécs.

The area size of the building is 10,000 square meters, which is covered by steel structure. During the World Wars it was completely damaged and then closed for some years.

Throughout the 1990s restoration works brought the market back to its ancient splendour.
