Best public squares to hang out in Budapest

Yes, Budapest has a lot to offer, but for you to see all, a Hop-on Hop-off tour is just the beginning!

If you are rally interested in learning about the city, sooner or later you will have to leave your favorite Hop on Hop off Budapest bus, and explore the best public squares of the city. Budapest’s squares all have their own story to tell. Most of them have been recently modernized and reinvented, like Erzsébet square or Kálvin square. As vivid transportation hubs these squares provide a unique insight into the beating heart of the city!

Other squares, like March 15th or Batthyány squares are great if you are to check out the sights of the UNESCO World Heritage Sight of Budapest, the Danube promenade. With sights over the Buda Castle and the unique Parliament, these squares are great if you want to explore the essential architectural and historic sights of the city.

Heroes’ square is probably the most impressive public square of Budapest.
