This splendid pedestrian plaza is named after the poet Mihaly Vorosmarty, whose statue stands at its centre. Designed by Ede Telcs and built immaculately in Carrarra marble, the statue rallies the nation in the poet’s own words: “Your homeland, Hungary, serve unwaveringly”. The square’s northern side is dominated by Gerbeaud Cukraszda, Hungary’s most famous coffee house. It is also worth visiting the quaint metro station.
GERBEAUD: This is the most famous coffee house in Budapest. Since 1858, Gerbeaud Cukrászda has been renowned for its richly decorated interior and immaculate service.
