The Parliament is located on Kossuth Square in District V or the financial district of the city. There's nothing much to do in its direct circumference, but it is however, full of beautiful historic architecture, sculptures and memorials. It's especially worth checking out the architecture along Alkotmány Street (no. 5) leading to Kossuth Square.
The top two attractions near the Parliament are located on the same square (Kossuth Square): Directly opposite the Parliament is the Museum of Ethnography, which took part in a public competition for becoming the next Hungarian parliament, coming second place. The Eternal Flame stands in the middle of the Square.
The next two attractions are found on the other side of the Parliament, facing the Danube: The bronze shoes are lined along the embankment commemorating the Jews shot into the Danube from that very spot during the Second World War. Just behind is the Olympic Memorial Park with the names of Hungarian Olympic medalists all the way from Athens to Sydney.
Great places for strolls are Margaret Island, a lovely park in the heart of the city and Liberty Square, a beautiful hidden gem of the V. District only a short walk from the parliament.
The West End is also a short walk from the Parliament along Alkotmány Street (no. 5), famous for its architecture, and the Nyugati Railway Station is found right next the shopping centre.
Our last pick is Tram no. 2 that runs along the Danube embankment passing the Parliament. It's not only a great means of transport but a brilliant way to enjoy the view of the Buda hills on a rainy day – or just when tired and in no mood to walk.
