On the one hand, this is a beautiful square located in a beautiful area, but on the other hand, it is impossible to ignore the fact that since 2014 there has been a statue erected by the Hungarian government, which rightly raises quite a bit...More

We went here as part of a Jewish tour and the story is very sad. Looking at the pictures of the Jews who were killed makes one very happy to be alive today. Budapest has a very tumultuous history just between WWII and the 1950's...More

Surrounded by impressive buildings. The historical architecture in budapest is very impressive. Surly guard to american embassy in one corner can be ignored. When you walk around the city you become aware of so much history. Worth a wander through.

District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube,
with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The
Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica
stand out as two of the finest examples of
architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for
more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval
city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while
the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention
