Kossuth Lajos Square houses some of the most important attractions and buildings of Budapest. Apart from Hungarian Parliament Building and Museum of Ethnography increasing the historical value of this place, Kossuth Lajos Square even as a neighborhood holds a very prominent place in Budapest’s history. Initially known as Országház tér (named after the parliament building from the year 1898-1927), then TömÃÂ…‘ tér or Stadt Schopper Platz (1853-1898) give an insight on the history of this square. For example its first name was because of the parliament building but the second name emans Landfill square and it was the name because it had a lot of rubbish filled in front of this square during that time. You can take a walk through this square to complete absorb the Old Budapest experience.

Kossuth Ter, Budapest Reviews - Write a Review

  • The changing of the guard in front of the Parliament was impressive. The building is best viewed from the Danube but up front is nice as well. The underground museum was sobering and interesting just off the plaza that details Hungarian recent history.

  • Very impresive place. I'd like to come again to visit the inside part of the building.

  • One of nicest buildings which I have seen in differnet countries.Has a great view in the day and at night.Awesome construction

  • This a public square with amazing architecture. In the same time are not so much tourists.

  • One of the best public squares I have ever visited. Clean, safe even at 11:00 pm at night, not too crowded, beautifully landscaped, modern yet blending seamlessly with historic buildings surrounding it. Perfect place to sit and enjoy the view of the beautiful buildings around it.
