Named after the famous poet Mihály Vörösmarty, whose statue it holds, this beautiful square open to the public is a lovely place to spend a lazy afternoon.
Vorosmarty’s grey statue is certainly a sight to see here. It is a beautiful monument that immortalizes this patriotic and romanticist poet. He was an extremely important figure in Hungarian history so it makes to find out more about him from the locals. But since it is at the northern end of Vaci Utca, the beautiful Café Gerbaud also forms a part of the landscape. This café is reputed for its cakes and pastries so do try one out if you can. The square is certainly great for people watching and will be the perfect place to stroll around on a lazy day. Find a spot to sit in and you are bound to enjoy a great evening or two here.

It's the end of the M1 as it was not built to cross under the Danube River back then. It's fun to watch the small train switch tracks in a small station to be ready to go the other way. These M1 stations are all pettit size and just a few meters from surface, but they are nicely done.
UNESCO World Heritage metro! Very cute and nostalgic. You should try this yellow line!
Watch these guys at the market. Complete rip off - 26 euro for one small dish and water. Pity that they look to take advantage of tourists!
Very unusual metro line, actually the second oldest in the world after London's. It is right below the street level, just 3-4 meters under it, so very convenient (if you can use stairs). The trains and stations are really tiny - it has a length of a standard tram (~30 m, compared to normal ~100 m for metro), very narrow and low profile (so the engines are between the carriages above Jacobs bogies). Very nice architecturally too. Worth a ride for sure.
A lovely traditional metro station, and with a lot of Hungarian market activities.
