A nice little square in the middle of the city, with green areas, benches and some statues. If you are near the chain bridge you should visit it.

This is a small and unassuming square, but whatever you do - do not miss the stunning Gresham palace, located behind the square.

This was my wife and I's favorite spot to take pictures of the chain bridge as well as across to Buda. The little park also has two beautiful statues as well as the beautiful hotel all lite up in the background at night.

The Square though small in size was near to the Chain Bridge. You could take photos around and there were quite a lot of statues there. Nice view on Buda side across the bridge and many beautiful structures in the vicinity.

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
