This is the place to sit down, relax and enjoy the view before carrying on with the strenuous activity of sightseeing, the place to take those restless children bored to death by a morning of museums and exhibitions, or the place to get wet on a hot urban summer day.

Liberty Square is already well known for the buildings surrounding it; the American Embassy, Hungarian National Bank and Television Headquarters, and is also famous for giving home to the last Communist monument remaining in the city. Now this newly finished fountain also decorates the square and has already proven to be a great source of entertainment. The rectangular fountain is lined by weight sensitive tiles, and stepping on any one will stop the flow of water for just enough time to enter into the middle, where you'll find yourself surrounded by a rippling curtain of water.
