We start our shopping tour in Nagy Diófa Street, where a copper sign draws attention to the Massolit Books & Café. The shop hiding behind palm trees keeps real treasures for booklovers with their outstanding collection of politics, history and literature. What’s more, Zoltán Pallai, barista, makes one of the best seasonal espressos in town, propagating “a new way of thinking about coffee”. During reading you can have a spinach quiche or a carrot cake made after home recipe.
Hopping back on our rickshaw we are not stopping until we reach the fair at Vörösmarty Square, where Anikó Róth’s stand awaits visitors with original diaries, postcards, notebooks and bookmarks. The artist, who works as an illustrator of tales too, has been partly inspired by Christmas, so it could be a good idea to visit the stand if you’re looking for presents, or you just want to surprise yourself. Our favorite is this lovely red diary.
Approaching the end of the day our rickshaw slows to a halt and we bid goodbye to our ever-smiling “chauffeur” and can’t get something out of our minds: the thermal wonder called Veli Bej Fürdő. The bath on the Buda side of the capital is known to a few as of now, so you can relax comfortably in its saunas, steam room or pool of curative water without being disturbed by anyone.
Having been to the most appealing venues of Budapest, after bathing we have but to come up with what way we should present our capital to you next week...
If you envied us for our exploring tour, please, don’t. Rather, you should play for the offers made by the unique venues.
