Pizza, pasta, tiramisu. These are the first things that Italian cuisine usually reminds us of. However the cuisine of this country is much richer and much more versatile than that.
The Hall and Market Management of the Municipality of Budapest and the Trade Office of Italy in Budapest would like to introduce you this variety during the Italian Days in the most frequently visited market place of Budapest, in the Central Market Hall.

We are pleased to inform you that the basement of Central Market Hall has been renewed!
The primary goal of the program of improvement was the introduction of quality Hungarian products that can be found and bought there.
In the Avenue of Hungaricums you can also see the world famous scientific invention of Gabor Domokos and Peter Varkonyi, the Gömböc (Gomboc).

The aim of the Tourism Days is to make the Central Market Hall and its touristic attractions popular. We would like to provide place to grand events and country exhibitions. We welcome visitors to the following events in 2015.

The Cental Market Hall won the Certificate of Excellence Award of TripAdvisor, the largest travel site, again in 2014.
This award is especially important to us because it is given each year based on the feedback from travellers.

CNN chose the Central Market Hall of Budapest as the greatest one in Europe.

The Central Market Hall won the 1st place among the five most vibrant city markets in Europe, followed by Mercat de San Josep de la Boqueira in Barcelona, The Grand Bazaar in Istanbul, the Portobello Road market in London and Les Puces in Paris.
