A nice place to wander and get some photos. Surrounded by beautiful buildings. Very popular with local dog walkers who seem to meet up en masse and catch up...gives it a lovely feel even on a cold November evening.

Try and walk thru this park. You most definitely will be at Parliament House, and Kossuth Lajos Ter right in front of it. From the southern tip, close to metro stop, walk over the Igar Magy (remembrance bridge) and down side street, and you will come right into the park. We did it to see the United States Embassy on...

try to get to this place as it gives an insight into the occupation and statues and memoriums to both sides and especially the 1956 uprising

Most travel books overlook this sight. It is soooo unfortunate given its serene and historic importance. Nearby are several buildings, including the American Embassy and the State Television. The square itself features monuments to liberty from Nazi occupation and from Soviet tyranny. We specifically went to see the statue of President Ronald Reagan. Unveiled in 2011, this life-size bronze statue... More

The square has open places for walking, sitting , relaxing. Do so placidly amid the surrounding noises. Be playful by having a go at the unique fountain. The fountain consists of a square marble space lined with three or four bands of waterspouts , shooting up two or three feet from street level. While sitting down to relax, do look... More

This place again shows the dramatic history of Hungary and the whole Eastern Europe block. Close to each other are standing memorials of Red Army who once liberated and once occupied the country and Ronald Reagan who was able to dismatle the communist regime. Rather bit study history before visiting this place. But it is impressive for everyone.

The statues of several politicians having played a role in the Hungarian History are hugh. Very surprising a life-like statue of Ronald Reagan pointing to the American Embassy !

A bit of history moment duringb the trip. It was nice to hang around this place. If you have kids and it's a really hot day it is perfect to hang out there to refresh. The memorial is nice.

In the center of the square is a memorial to the 300,000 Soviet soldiers who lost their lives liberating the city from the Nazis. Across from the American embassy is the radio and television building that was a central point for the revolution in 1956.

Liberty square is located not far from the parliament building and from the important Shoes on the Danube memorial. In the square you can see beautiful architecture and a unique water fountain designed to stop when people walk through it so they do not get wet. In this square you can find the American Embassy if needed. In 2011, a... More

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
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 and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
