Even though it’s over run with visitors most of the year- this is one of my favorites to walk through, no matter what season.

Apart from the Parliament building you can find some other significant buildings and The Kossuth Square Massacre Memorial which remembers the victims of the Russian invasion of 1956. The number is stated between 22 and 1000 and anyone who knows more is welcome to set...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
