  • Lots to see in such a small area. Beautiful views of the Danube which makes for great photos to share. Lots of picturesque spots to photograph or pose near.  more »
  • Such a beautiful spot. There isn’t a whole lot to do and see but the scenery is really amazing for the area. If you have time I would definitely recommend stopping down here for a little bit lots of stuff to do around the area as well.
  • It is great to see all the Kings/Gentlemen in power that had a history in making Budapest what it is today. Very interesting and impressive. Not seen anything like that in all my travels..
  • Lovely open space in the middle of the city and also a great gateway to the city park. Copper status of the founding fathers of Hungary can be found here. A great place to relax and watch skate boarders and BMX bikers during the day.
  • This is one of the major squares in Budapest. Noted for its iconic statue complex featuring the Seven Chieftains of the Magyars and other important Hungarian national leaders, as well as the Memorial Stone of Heroes.
  • If you only go to one square in Budapest, make it heroes square. Full of heroes, old and new (mainly old) really is quite an impressive monument, and quiet (although traffic skirts it's edges, the square it's self was deserted) right next to the art gallery too so you can hit two in one.
