A shop in the capital
However if you do not have time for a trip to Balaton, you can enjoy „the taste of the lake” in Budapest, in the very centre of the city! Deák square is really the vivid heart of this youthful capital, it used the be the main bus station, then for a while this suqare was meant to be the location of the new national theatre. Finally plans have changed, the theatre was built by the river Danube, but a hole already dug for the theatre remained. It took some years while the square has found its objective in life: now it hosts and underground parking house and some grass covered places for just killing time. In summer the square is full of youngsters sitting on the grass, with their feet in the decoration pools, drinking wine and chatting. This square is the place where Kristinus Wine estate opened a shop, called Kristinus Borboutique (’bor’ stands for wine). Pop in, taste the new vintage Irsai Olivér, this crispy, aromatic, enchanting wine!
