This small second hand bookshop takes ideal location by Jokai square, therefore it is hard to miss it. And why not enter it once you're there, despite your very basic Hungarian - or none at all? Here's place to find literature and other printed things - more or less second hand, but I noticed a few guides and maps, too.
Browse the book and book titels, eventually you may find something foreign too. Othewise, see their old post card collection and dig the black and white paper with images of some distant time.

What to buy: old postcards, used books, new books and guides, lexicons, replicas of old maps, old photos. More or less all books are in Hungarian - so if you're lucky to be able to speak the language you've found the great place with great books. If you cannot - you can just see inside anyways and buy thier old, stamped postcards - most interesting are those of A-H era.

What to pay: 4 postcards relived my wallet for 1000 HUF. Each one comes with different price.
