The Liberty Square is an absolutely fantastic square to visit on any trip to Budapest. Being close to the magnificent Parliament building and grounds the buildings surrounding the square are very imposing and well worth visiting in there own right . There is a Monument to the Soviet " liberation " of Hungary and also to the people who sacrificed... More

While walking the city, be sure to visit both the square and be moved by the memorial. Not the formal memorial, but the handwritten notes regarding all those lost and those affected by that great loss. Moving.

This is a very breath taking memorial, my wife and myself stumbled on this finding our way back to the hotel, when you read it it makes you think about life in general

One of many historical squares with statues in Budapest. Probably best to visit on a hot summer day, though the venues in the vicinity are a bit on the pricey side.

This is not something you go find and watch, but it's good to look around while you head from the St. Stephen Basilica to the Parliament. You can also enjoy the green grass which is relatively rare to see in Budapest.

Most of the names connected with freedom, peace an so on were given during the Communist rule, The name of this place is much older. You can find here the US Embassy, the defunct stock exchange, a memorial to the Soviet army, a statue of general Bandholz who saved Budapest's treasures after WW1. Often there are markets with sales booths... More

Very, very interesting. We took advantage of one of the 'free' walking tours (they aren't free, but there is no fixed price, so you pay what you think is reasonable/affordable at the end) available as was very impressed. We chose the Communism Walk which involved 2-3 hours of the history of Communist Budapest, including talks on housing, social interactions, the... More

Most top 10 lists don't include this place. It's one of the nicest building ensembles we came across walking from the parliament to St. Stephen's basilica. Nice cafe in the center.

Had the chance to walk around the area for a while and very much enjoyed the art all around. We particularly liked the gate with the large eagle memorial monument.

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.
