When you plan your visit to the Parliament, plan enough time because besides the building itself, the grounds and monuments and statutes are plentiful, even if just to take a look. Each one has its own importance and significance in Hungarian history. Kossuth was a President in addition to other roles during the mid 1800's. His statute is on the... More

A nice statue located close to the Danube river (near the Parliament building), but nothing special.

Behind the parliament building, a nice statue. I don't know history of lajos kossuth, but that seems he was a hungarian hero. The place of statue can be seen by everybody visiting parliament.

THE STATUE OF LAJOS KOSSUTH is an really beautiful statue that you can take in when visiting PARLIAMENT BUILDING or KOTHOS LAJOS TERE and is a nice little diversion.

This is one of the largest and most prominent statues in Budapest and features one of the most renowned political figures of Hungarian 19th century history. Kossuth was leader of the 1848-1849 Hungarian War of Independence against Habsburg rule. It is quite an imposing statue located by Parliament.

If one's visited the Hungarian Parliament and its surounding grounds, it's likely that one would also have noticed this statue located in the square also named after the famous man. It's quite a large monument for this important man who was instrumental in helping his country form an identity separate from the then Austro-Hungarian empire. Only partially successful in his...

Its a decent statue dedicated to an iconic leader of Hungarian politics - Kossuth Lajos. If you are in the vicinity of the parliament (which again you can't miss because of its location and importance in the city of Budapest) then you can't miss this statue and the crowds surrounding it. Make sure to visit in the evenings or maybe... More

Located just next to the Parliament, there is something a bit intimidating with this statue. Still, it's an impressive statue that looks over a nice little park.

Monument has good location. If you are walking by Danube, visiting Parlament, you can't miss it. Maybe you'll have problems to take photo, there's always crowd. To avoid tour groups, go in the evening.

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
