Great Market Hall, Budapest, Hungary


You could wander this expansive commercial palace for an hour, and not once look at the wares on display; that’s how stunning the Great Market Hall truly is. A neogothic masterwork built in 1897, the market was designed to allow vendors of all varieties from throughout the city to showcase their wares across three massive floors. The bottom floor is mostly traditional foodstuffs, but the second and third floors contain local arts, crafts, souvenirs and more. Yet the main draw remains the building itself – crane your neck to admire the stunning Zsolnay tiling on the ceiling, shipped in from Pécs.
