Very pretty place

Had the chance to walk around the area for a while and very much enjoyed the art all around. We particularly liked the gate with the large eagle memorial monument.

Most top 10 lists don't include this place. It's one of the nicest building ensembles we came across walking from the parliament to St. Stephen's basilica. Nice cafe in the center.

A nice place to wander and get some photos. Surrounded by beautiful buildings. Very popular with local dog walkers who seem to meet up en masse and catch up...gives it a lovely feel even on a cold November evening.

Try and walk thru this park. You most definitely will be at Parliament House, and Kossuth Lajos Ter right in front of it. From the southern tip, close to metro stop, walk over the Igar Magy (remembrance bridge) and down side street, and you will come right into the park. We did it to see the United States Embassy on...

Most travel books overlook this sight. It is soooo unfortunate given its serene and historic importance. Nearby are several buildings, including the American Embassy and the State Television. The square itself features monuments to liberty from Nazi occupation and from Soviet tyranny. We specifically went to see the statue of President Ronald Reagan. Unveiled in 2011, this life-size bronze statue... More

The square has open places for walking, sitting , relaxing. Do so placidly amid the surrounding noises. Be playful by having a go at the unique fountain. The fountain consists of a square marble space lined with three or four bands of waterspouts , shooting up two or three feet from street level. While sitting down to relax, do look... More

This place again shows the dramatic history of Hungary and the whole Eastern Europe block. Close to each other are standing memorials of Red Army who once liberated and once occupied the country and Ronald Reagan who was able to dismatle the communist regime. Rather bit study history before visiting this place. But it is impressive for everyone.

A bit of history moment duringb the trip. It was nice to hang around this place. If you have kids and it's a really hot day it is perfect to hang out there to refresh. The memorial is nice.

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.
