Finding Non-Tacky Souvenirs in Budapest
Finding souvenirs in Budapest
When you’re going abroad it’s normal to bring back souvenirs for relatives and co-workers. But as you walk the main streets and touristy areas of Budapest you’ll probably find a mountain of mainstream souvenirs. However, if you just need something a little more special, it is better to check out the smaller streets of the inner city for more interesting shops.
This cute place is a designer fashion store. Once inside you’ll discover there’s also a small exhibition room along with and a silk-screen printer in the back. You’ll find it on Rumbach Sebestyén street, right in the heart of the Jewish Quarter. Most of the products, which are mainly clothes and jewelry are the creations of Hungarian designers using recycled materials. There are t-shirts, pillows, posters, notebooks and postcards with Hungarian patterns and slogans. Other items revolve around themes of Budapest, or something typically local. Also they serve great coffee which is always a huge plus. Printa
