Each Sunday from spring to fall, GOzsdU BAzaar aka GOUBA is open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. As admission is free, it should have been listed among the free things to do in Budapest. 🙂 This weekly held Sunday market is located at the beautifully restored Gozsdu Courtyard (Gozsdu Udvar) in Budapest’s Jewish quarter which is also a great place to visit and spend the day wandering through Old Budapest. Gozsdu Courtyard connects Király Street and Dob Street by an architecturally fascinating labyrinth of cafés, shops, bars, and other attractions and can be accessed from both directions.
GOUBA has a real bazaar vibe and takes you into the site of acoustic musicians’ melodies and scents of freshly made sausages and pastries wafting through the sunlit courtyard. Just like art markets in several cities in the world, we have our very own GOUBA which features a wide array of handmade and antiques sellers. In this open-air market more than 100 vendors sell one-of-a-kind jewelry, unique dresses, accessories, antiques such as old photo cameras, books, badges and garnitures from the communist era, old wooden toys, local wines, home décor, postcard and stamp collections and many more. It’s a great place for tourists and locals as well to find unique gifts and souvenirs while being entertained by street theater performances and live music productions in the background.
