Our shop Bolhapalota is a curiosity, which never before was existing in our country! We offer unique opportunities for all our lovely guests. Not only the used goods, but also the unique design-products! If you have a lot of stuff at home, think over the following: The odds and ends may be also lucrative! By the way, which is worthless to you may be a treasure to another! Gifts for any occasions and any age can be found here. If you don't know what to buy for your mum or for your love, just step in! It's worth to have a look already because of the pleasant atmosphere!

Lots of locals pawning their belongings. Seems smart, the store charges steep prices. Therefore it should be fair that the locale get a real good price. Not fun. Berlins mauerpark flea market by far beter in every way.

Why compare a classical OPEN AIR flea market in another city in another country which is even not in the citycenter with a SHOP that is located in the citycenter of Budapest where the whole system is totally different???

Picked over stuff. Funky and eclectic but really tired. Garage sale gone bad and not all that great.

District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube,
with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The
Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica
stand out as two of the finest examples of
architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for
more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval
city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while
the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention
