Main Square (Fo ter), Szentendre

4.0
#2 of 16 in Things to do in Szentendre
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.

    Apart from the main square itself, the people worth to walk, see the premises of sale, constructions, walking through the streets. Very good return to Budapest by boat.
