Very nice little square in the city centre, near the famous Chain bridge. Lovely green areas with benches, but can get too noisy to relax.

A nice little square in the middle of the city, with green areas, benches and some statues. If you are near the chain bridge you should visit it.

This was my wife and I's favorite spot to take pictures of the chain bridge as well as across to Buda. The little park also has two beautiful statues as well as the beautiful hotel all lite up in the background at night.

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
