Kossuth tér, Parlament, Országház

The Kossuth Lajos tér lies in Lipótváros the northern part of the 5th District near the bank of the Danube. Being the site of the Parliament, the square is the symbolic centre of the Hungarian State, and therefore a frequent location for state celebrations and other public and political events. Thanks to its renovation in 2014, Kossuth Square has became one of Budapest’s most spectacular parks. Now you can stroll on both sides of the Parliament and approach the building to admire Imre Steindl‘s work up close.
