    Fountain - Oroszlános kút

    by grayfo Updated Feb 7, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A popular meeting place in Vörösmarty Square; especially Tour Guides is the Lion Fountain (Oroszlános kút), also very popular with children who love to climb on the lion statues whilst their parents rest on the fountain's steps. The fountain was built in 1985 over a well and was created by László Wild and sculptor Ágnes Péter; the four stone lions surround an old ornate iron lamppost in its centre.

  • 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.)

    Keep walking north on Vaci utca and you will come to Vorosmarty ter. Here you will find a few more stores and the famous Cafe Gerbeaud.

    The picture is of a monument to Hungarian poet and patriot Mihaly Vorosmarty (1800-1855). It was unveiled in 1908.

    Vorosmarti Ter (Square)

    by edvin_br Updated Jul 6, 2004

    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.

    Vörösmarty Square

    by Gillianina Updated Mar 26, 2004

    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. :-)

    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.

    Trying to blend in with the culture!
