Liszt Ferenc tér

This square by Oktogon was named after the world-famous Hungarian composer, Franz Liszt. It is about 200 meters long, it features a park in the middle, and it is surrounded by restaurants and cafés like Menza, Trattoria Gusto and Becketts. Liszt Ferenc Square is popular with locals and tourists alike, especially on summer evenings. It’s ideal for meetings, short strolls, a great coffee, lunch, or dinner. At its end closer to Király Street stands the Eclectic-Art Nouveau building of Academy of Music, while Pest’s Broadway is also found in the area.
