What you can expect
Explore a treasure trove of antiques, trinkets, and curios on a visit to Ecseri Flea Market with a private guide. Find watches, paintings, ceramics, and communist-era artifacts while you mingle with the unique characters who populate the lively bazaar.
Once you meet your friendly personal guide, make your way from the city center for your visit to the market. Out of the way for most Budapest tourists, the market gives you a look at the lifestyle of buyers and sellers who trade in a diverse array of curious objects, from fur hats and furniture to walking sticks or communist medals.
As you browse the stalls, get to know some of the personalities who make their living in the market's bustling atmosphere. Throughout the visit, your guide is on hand to help you communicate with the merchants and to share insight into to the history and significance of the goods on display. Try some lángos, a local fast food featuring deep-fried flatbread, and get a real sense for this special side of local life.
