Do not forget to stop at one of the stalls where you can buy the famous Hungarian sweet Kürtöskalácsbetter known like Trdelnik in the Czech Republic. It comes to be the same with some variations, but just as delicious. After trying this sweet you will not be the same.
*Name Kürtöskalács I have been looking for it on the internet, clearly, since it is impossible to pronounce it and, even more, to memorize it. So ask how you can.
The Kurjccjksbvjk dessert (I won't write it anymore eh) is about a sweet dough made on the grill and sprinkled with nuts (Our favorite is cinnamon and almonds) It can be filled, for those with a sweet tooth, with chocolate or Nutella.
