Things To Do Near Vorosmarty Ter/Vaci u in Budapest

The Vörösmarthy Square and Váci Street ensemble located in the heart of the city (V. District) is considered one of the most beautiful parts of Budapest. Architecturally, the area is amazing, with original and recently reconstructed facades alike. Not surprisingly it has become a tourist hotspot, and today it's shops, cafes and restaurants as far as the eye can see. It is however one of the pricier districts, but you definitely get your money's worth. Saw a postcard of Budapest that made you book that flight? That picture was most probably taken here.

Parallel to the Váci Street runs our top pick, the Duna Korzo along the River Danube, from where a beautiful panorama opens of the Buda hills. Our next four picks are four of the city's most beautiful churches, all found in the circumference of the Vörösmarthy/Váci Street ensemble. The St. Stephen's Basilica; largest Roman Catholic Church of Budapest and the Dohány Street Synagogue; the largest Synagogue of Europe are the city's pride and joy. Ferenciek Square gives home to two other churches, the Inner City Parish Church; the oldest building of Budapest built on the burial site of martyr St. Gellért and the Franciscan Church; bearing the relief commemorating the Great Flood of 1838.

Our sixth pick is the Central Market Hall located right at the Southern end of Váci Street, an ideal place to enjoy some authentic Hungarian food after a long morning of sightseeing.

East of the Váci Street lies the Deák Square, central park of Budapest, where our next two picks can be found. The Andrássy Avenue stems from the Square, while the Lutheran Museum is located inside the Lutheran Church standing on the Square easily recognizable due to its lacking a cupola.

North of Vörösmarthy square is Roosevelt Square, where our last two picks are located: the magnificent Gresham Palace and representative Chain Bridge guarded by the four bronze lions.
