March 15 Square is a lovely little square just off Elizabeth Bridge, a nice green oasis of calm ,on this square is a rather cool looking statue called Barbarians Battle With The Romans Monument, this hints at the fact a Roman Fort was once located here ,the views of the beautiful Budapest Inner City Mother Church Of Our Lady Of The Assumption are stunning as are the views of the famous Elizabeth Bridge, all in all a wonderful square to check out if you're Pest side of the River Danube.

This square, at the foot of Elizabeth Bridge, has a lot of history. This area was once a major Roman fortification.

The name is in reference to the date, March 15, 1848, when the poet Sándor Petőfi recited a poem from the stairs of the Hungarian National Museum. Petőfi’s passionate recitation marked the beginning of the revolution against the Habsburg regime.

That poem became the words of the Nemzeti Dal, or National Song.

A small ‘ter’ (square) with a lot of history. Get a guide who can explain all that is on the pavement. The lines represent the Danube from the Black Forest in Germany which flows for ~ 2850 kilometres to the Black Sea, along 10 countries.

You can sea the Roman archaeological remain is visible through the glass covering.

* recommended if you’re a history buff.

March 15 Square (Marcius 15 ter) is just next door to Elisabeth Bridge. It is small, recently renovated square.

The square offers very little to do during the winter.
You can forget of seeing any of the archaeological remains, as the glass covering them is completely opaque.

Tucked in at the foot of Elisabeth bridge is this small recently renovated square, seemingly quiet for it location, however the hustle and bustle, is not far away with the touristy vaci street behind the square.

This square seemed somehow gloomy during winter, as all of the bar and restaurant area is now gone, and there's just the archaeological dig in its center, which is not too impressive, either.

At the Pest side foot of the Elizabeth bridge is the March 15th square. The Duna River and on the other side is the
Budapest Inner-City Mother Church of the Blessed Virgin, the oldest church, is bordering it. From the left of the church is an archeological park, since here was the location of a Roman fortress, the Contra - Aquincum, that was still visible when the conquering Hungarians arrived.
In between the tall houses on the right side is the famous Mátyás cellar. Everyone who likes pleasant Hungarian food visits to that place. Also, this is the park, from where the Duna Corso starts. On the right side of the bridge is a holocaust memorial, which is probably entirely new since I don’t remember to see it before. There are like white stepping stones the green grass, with the names of concentration and extermination camps written on them, and all leading to a cylindrical shape furnace, full of numbers, and only a ribbon of smoke is coming out of it. At the start, there were names, aren’t too well known- or maybe just for me, who isn't Jewish or a holocaust researcher - like Jasenovac and Gross-Rosen, but further continued with the known Majdanek and Dachau, with the crescendo of Auschwitz - Birkenau, and Buchenwald. The Square remembers. From the glorious Roman times to the horrors of World War II.

This is a small grassy square close to the Danube and Vaci Street with plenty of history and full of bars and restaurants for those who like the nightlife. During the day it provides a quiet place to sit and contemplate,
