This square has been one of the central spots in downtown Budapest since the early 19 th century. Originally called Promenade Square, it was renamed Theatre Square after the German Theatre which was situated there, and later it became Gizella Square. Since 1908 the square has been called Vörösmarty Square, after the great Hungarian poet of the 19 th century. An Eclectic-style palace houses the famous Confectionery "Gerbaud".
Vorosmarti Ter (Square)
This is my favorite spot in Budapest. This charming elegant square is one of the best in Europe i belive. Its a perfect place for a romantic dinner or something...
This picturesque classic square always been a center of Pests high life, its full of expensive boutique, stylish cafes, artists and many many tourists. In the square there are many beautiful neo-classical buildings, hotels and colorful old fountains which give this place a lovely atmosphre.
Vaci utca and all the pedestrians around it arrive to Vorosmarty ter, from there you can have a trip with the old M1 or continue north to the Parliament.

It's one of the place I liked most in Budapest. It's a very lively place, cozy and with a nice atmosphere. Here are located elegant shops, open air markets, galleries, and the two most popular cafés of the capital: the old Gerbeaud and the trendy Art Café. If I can suggest a great and alternative (and cheap!) way to spend an evening in Budapest, just sit by the momument to Vörösmarty with friends ,chatting, drinking beer and watching the passers-by. :-)
Can't Miss Square in Pest
You will certainly come upon Vörösmarty tér during a stroll around Pest and the shopping areas on Vaci ut. In the center of the square is a statue to the Hungarian national poet of the same name. Most people use the statue as a meeting point or place to rest. But if you take a closer look at the statue, just under the poet's left foot, you will see a small round disc set into the material of the statue. It is actually a coin, which a beggar offered to the building of the statue. To commemmorate the beggar's generosity, the coin was included in the statue.
A funny sight is the statue enveloped in a plastic bubble during the winter months. This is to keep the statue from cracking due to the cold weather.

Leave Vorosmarty ter
Leave Vorosmarty ter (from in front of Gerbeaud's) and walk towards the Danube. I want you to find the little garden between the Vigado ter boat station and the Vigado itself--the concert hall of the National Philhamonic. Benches, greenery, a wonderful view of the Danube, and peace and quiet. It is a wonderful place to get away from the hustle and bustle and just relax and watch life pass by. (In the evening the area is often deserted but nevertheless quite safe--although an occasional prostitute may happen by if you are a single guy sitting alone.)
Vörösmarty Square is an excellent place to wander. Around souvenir stalls, and quaint shops, it is somewhere you can become happily lost in. This statue is of local poet Mihaly Vörösmarty.
