  • There are two groups of statues and sculptures of Lajos Kossuth. The located and coming out on the picture that the opinion is a group and observed by us corresponds to another fully sculpted in white rock with a diversity of expression. The second us interested by the expressiveness of sadness that involves those who are there represented. Without considering an argument by having read the disparity of political opinions. This we liked, as it looks towards the Parliament and is an excellent work. It is to the right of the Parliament in the beautiful park that precedes the entry. Lajos Kossuth led the movement of Hungarian bid for independence from the Habsburg Austrian Empire in the mid-nineteenth century

  • The huge monument to the leader of the 1848 revolution against the Habsburgs seems to almost disappear in the Majesty and grandeur of the square overlooked by the Parliament. As you can see in the photos that I attach the monument seen up close is great and the white marble colour accentuates the details. Nice and more interest for the Hungarians. If you enjoyed this review, you can read about my many other for Budapest and I like clicking on: is it useful? Thanks:)

  • One of the best public squares I have ever visited. Clean, safe even at 11:00 pm at night, not too crowded, beautifully landscaped, modern yet blending seamlessly with historic buildings surrounding it. Perfect place to sit and enjoy the view of the beautiful buildings around it.
  • Amazing architecture surrounding this open square. There are water mist jets which spray every so often that were perfect in the heat to cool off with.
  • Must visit site while visiting Budapest. Recently renovated beautiful square with the stunning view of the Hungarian parliament. Impressive architecture of the surrounding buildings. Feels like a time capsule into the historical fame of the Hungarian empire.
  • Great sqare, perfect for pictures...if you have the time, surely should get to visit the parliament from the inside.
  • The Parliament building is beautiful and well worth a look, as do the neighboring buildings. The view to Buda is really nice, too. But otherwise the square is empty, with no trees to provide shade and no benches to sit, outside of nearby cafes. Gets really damn slippery too in rain or ice. Changing of the guards ceremony unintentionally hilarious. Ugly looking and depressing group statue occupies place of "honor" - what other nation would celebrate its tragedies?
