  • And beautiful statues. Able to see museums, parks, skating rinks from this spot. You are able to park on pne of the side roads and use the crosswalks to get to the site.

  • Impressive square with a historical significance. There are seven sculptures on each side that depict people that played a role in Hungarian history. There are a lot of attractions in walking distance such as the, City park, House of music, Vajdahunyad Castle, Museum of Fine Arts and more.
  • Im giving this a four star as although the monuments are spectacular, and very akin to Vatican city style pillars that curve, there is a huge square that could be much more vibrant but remains bear. Fisherman's Bastion was much more impressive in my opinion.
