The chief tourist relevance of the Central Market Hall of Budapest, also referred to as the Great Market Hall, comes down to being a picturesque shopping opportunity no visitor of Budapest should miss out. Lavish stalls full of a wide range of foodstuffs, from fresh vegetables and fruit to delicacies and cheeses, as well as typical Hungarian souvenirs, can be spotted throughout the market, both on the ground floor and on the first floor.

However, this market hall stands out by yet another feature: it is the largest indoor market in Budapest, and a notable landmark of the architectural landscape of the city. This Gothic structure was opened in the late 19th century, and it is the work of Samu Pecz, an architect who had also contributed to designing the Church of Mathias. If not for shopping, then at least for admiring the building as such should tourists visit the splendid Nagycsarnok of Budapest!
