Mammut

It is located directly next to Széll Kálmán tér, one of the most frequented meeting points on its side of the city. It is easily accessible by public transport, but there is also a large parking garage. A bridge connects the mall’s twin buildings, thus creating an area of 105 square meters filled with shops for customers to browse from. You will also find a bowling alley and a cinema.
