The Central Market Hall of Budapest is constantly abuzz, spread over an area of 100,000 square feet (10,000 sq m) on 3 floors. It's one of the landmarks of the city, built in the 19th century, with brightly colored roof tiles that are easy to spot even from a distance.

Continue to a nearby kitchen for a crash-course in Hungarian cooking, preparing a light, 2-course meal, including the famous goulash soup and sweet crêpes.
