The oldest part of Budapest, Main Square (Fo ter) sits surrounded by Baroque buildings and a number of cafes, restaurants, and pubs. Notable buildings include the city hall and a museum--a former palace of the founders of the town. Look for the cross, which stands as a testimonial for plague survivors. The square also features a sculpture of the first city mayor and a group of bronze female figures with umbrellas. Board a regular passenger boat, which will take you along the river back to Budapest, providing a different perspective of the city.
