  • This large area, October 23, 1989 year, gathered a huge crowd that came to celebrate the proclamation of the Republic of Hungary. On the square there is the name of Lajos Kossuth, one of the leaders of the war of independence in 1848-1849. On the contrary, on the other side of the square, the statue of Ferenc Rakoczi II on a horse, war hero 1703-1711 years against the Habsburgs.

  • One of the most fascinating spots in Budapest...the square has been recently renovated and can be now used for public events. Also you can walk until right in front of the parliament building. Couldn't tell if it's more beautiful from the Buda side or once you're in the square.
  • Beautiful building on the banks of the river, with a visitors centre documenting the history of changes to the building and the area, close to other areas of interest to include on a walk around the city.
  • Amazing place. You can enjoy walking around stunning buildings and feeling history . An excellent place for photography.
  • Since the latest time the square got to rennovated, re-shaped, fontain pool added and garden is managed, in my opinion Kossuth square litterally became a prestigous place for the nation and good area for national ceremonies with the Parlament in the background.
  • One of the most impressive parliament building in the world. Worth visiting on day time and during the night.
