Nothing special here. It is a plaza which is somewhat the center of Budapest. There are interesting shops, but nothing special.

this spot is interesting to visit, for the 1956 Memorial nearby, the guards at the flagpole outside the Parliament bldg. Also a meeting point for a subway line and a tram line, making it very easy to get around.

The square is renown for its Parliament Building, Museum of Ethnography across, and various monuments including the Kossuth Memorial, Francis II Rakoczi statue and the Memorial for the 1956 Hungarian Revolution. If you visit the Parliament, which is usually a priority destination for most visitors,...More

This is a large square with nothing much in it except the Kossuth Monument at the north end and the Rakoczi Statue at the south end. But one useful purpose for this square is that it is big enough so you can walk far enough...More

An awe-inspiring space with a great deal to see which commemorates and celebrates Hungary's history. Parliament, obviously, is beautiful. You can see the changing of the guard each lunchtime, as well as enjoying the statues. Tram 2 will take you here, and directly through. I've...More

Klossuth Lajos Square is a big open space in front of the Parliament building. As the square itself, I do not believe it has any significant history other than being part of the common area full with history. It is an open space in front...More

This is a fine piece of open ground in front of the remarkable neo-Gothic parliament building. Because of the open space, you can get good views to the parliament building which is magnificent. Although if you visit in the late afternoon you are better going...More

On the day we visited there was a small protest going on having to do with the rights of immigrants. Seeing democracy in action in the square would probably please Lajos Kossuth, for whom the square is named. There is actually a bust of Kossuth...More

Kossuth Lajos Square is an imposing structure which leads to Hungary’s National Parliament which in itself is an iconic landmark. We walked around here both yesterday and today and marvelled at the Monuments in the Square. Easily accessible by Tram No 2 or on foot...More

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
