  • This is a very big shopping mall with nice shops and restaurants. There is a good, big cinema with IMAX Theatre.
  • Shopping center. What else to say. For me it was a life saver because there was open pharmacy at Sunday.
  • Minden bolt megtalalhato, es nagy a tomeg. You can find any kind of shops, but there is a great mass.
  • The bigest mall in Budapest, with lots of options, but the restaurants and fast food places are always crowded, with a hard possibility to find free tables. Very crowded on weekends and during christmas.
  • Oriasi meretu hely. Vasarlas eseten sokat kell setalni. A gyorsettermek szinvonala es minosege siralmas. Fenti kavezokat ajanlom. Mozijegy vasarlashoz mindig sokat kell varni.
